Description

Multiple vulnerabilities was found and corrected in Wireshark :

The dissect_nbap_T_dCH_ID function in epan/dissectors/packet-nbap.c in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 does not restrict the dch_id value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-5718).

epan/dissectors/packet-assa_r3.c in the ASSA R3 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-5719).

Buffer overflow in the RTPS dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-5720).

The dissect_mq_rr function in epan/dissectors/packet-mq.c in the MQ dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 does not properly determine when to enter a certain loop, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-5721).

Unspecified vulnerability in the LDAP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.10 and 1.10.x before 1.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-5722).

This advisory provides the latest supported version of Wireshark (1.8.10) which is not vulnerable to these issues.
