Wireshark 1.8.x < 1.8.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 66544
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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)

Solution

Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.8.7 or later.
