Wireshark 1.12.x < 1.12.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 89101
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Wireshark installed on the remote Mac OS X host is 1.12.x prior to 1.12.10. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components, which can result in a memory disclosure or a denial of service :
- ASN.1 BER dissector
- DNP dissector
- GSM A-bis OML dissector
- LLRP dissector
- RSL dissector
Additionally, a flaw related to how dynamic-link library (DLL) files are located and loaded exists in the ui/qt/wireshark_application.cpp file due to the application using a DLL search path that may include directories that are not trusted or under the user's control. A local attacker can exploit this issue, via a crafted DLL file injected into the search path, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Wireshark version 1.12.10 or later.
