Wireshark 1.12.x < 1.12.9 Multiple DoS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87824


The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 1.12.x prior to 1.12.9. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the following components :

- 802.11 dissector
- AllJoyn dissector
- ANSI A dissector
- Ascend file parser
- BER dissector
- DCOM dissector
- DIAMETER dissector
- DNS dissector
- GSM A dissector
- NBAP dissector
- NLM dissector
- RSL dissector
- RSVP dissector
- SCTP dissector
- SDP dissector
- Sniffer file parser
- T.38 dissector
- UMTS FP dissector
- VeriWave file parser
- ZigBee ZCL dissector
- zlib compression

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.12.9 or later.
