Debian DSA-2700-1 : wireshark - several vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 66767
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the dissectors for GTPv2, ASN.1 BER, PPP CCP, DCP ETSI, MPEG DSM-CC and Websocket, which could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected.

Solution

Upgrade the wireshark packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.2-5wheezy3.
