The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the dissectors for CAPWAP, GMR-1 BCCH, PPP, NBAP, RDP, HTTP, DCP ETSI and in the Ixia IxVeriWave file parser, which could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade the wireshark packages.
