Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : wireshark (MDVSA-2013:296)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71604


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Multiple vulnerabilities was found and corrected in Wireshark :

The dissect_sip_common function in epan/dissectors/packet-sip.c in the SIP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.12 and 1.10.x before 1.10.4 does not check for empty lines, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-7112).

Multiple buffer overflows in the create_ntlmssp_v2_key function in epan/dissectors/packet-ntlmssp.c in the NTLMSSP v2 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.12 and 1.10.x before 1.10.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long domain name in a packet (CVE-2013-7114).

This advisory provides the latest version of Wireshark (1.8.12) which is not vulnerable to these issues.


Update the affected packages.
