New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.7


The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of Wireshark 1.8 is earlier than 1.8.7. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Errors exist in the ETCH, MySQL, and RELOAD dissectors that could lead to an infinite loop, resulting in a denial of service. (Bugs 8546, 8458, 8464)

- Errors exist in the ASN.1 BER, DCP ETSI, GTPv2, MPEG DSM-CC, PPP CCP, and Websocket dissectors that could allow them to crash. (Bugs 8231, 8448, 8499, 8481, 8493, 8540, 8541, 8599, 8638)
