Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87825

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the following components :

- 802.11 dissector
- ANSI A dissector
- Ascend file parser
- BER dissector
- Bluetooth Attribute dissector
- DIAMETER dissector
- GSM A dissector
- IPMI dissector
- MP2T file parser
- MS-WSP dissector
- NBAP dissector
- NLM dissector

- RSL dissector
- RSVP dissector
- S7COMM dissector
- SCTP dissector
- Sniffer file parser
- TDS 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Wireshark version 2.0.1 or later.
