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: 4.4


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


The installed version of Wireshark 1.6 is earlier than 1.6.16. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities:

- Errors exist in the CAPWAP and DCP ETSI dissectors that could allow them to crash. (Bugs 8717, 8725)

- Errors exist in the HTTP dissector that could overrun the stack, which could result in an application crash.
(Bug 8733)


Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.6.16 or later.
