Debian DLA-497-1 : wireshark security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 91395

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the dissectors/parsers for PKTC, IAX2, GSM CBCH and NCP which could result in denial of service.

This update also fixes many older less important issues by updating the package to the version found in Debian 8 also known as Jessie.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u6~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
