Wireshark 1.10.x < 1.10.7 DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73864
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe installed version of Wireshark 1.10.x is a version prior to 1.10.7. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw exists with the RTP dissector when handling a malformed packet that could allow a remote attacker to crash Wireshark.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Wireshark version 1.10.7 or later.
