epan/dissectors/packet-nbap.c in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate conversation data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8714 The dissect_dcom_OBJREF function in epan/dissectors/packet-dcom.c in the DCOM dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not initialize a certain IPv4 data structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8716 The init_t38_info_conv function in epan/dissectors/packet-t38.c in the T.38 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not ensure that a conversation exists, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8717 The dissect_sdp function in epan/dissectors/packet-sdp.c in the SDP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not prevent use of a negative media count, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8718 Double free vulnerability in epan/dissectors/packet-nlm.c in the NLM dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1, when the 'Match MSG/RES packets for async NLM' option is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8720 The dissect_ber_GeneralizedTime function in epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in the BER dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 improperly checks an sscanf return value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8721 Buffer overflow in the tvb_uncompress function in epan/tvbuff_zlib.c in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet with zlib compression.

CVE-2015-8723 The AirPDcapPacketProcess function in epan/crypt/airpdcap.c in the 802.11 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the relationship between the total length and the capture length, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer overflow and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8725 The dissect_diameter_base_framed_ipv6_prefix function in epan/dissectors/packet-diameter.c in the DIAMETER dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the IPv6 prefix length, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer overflow and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8729 The ascend_seek function in wiretap/ascendtext.c in the Ascend file parser in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not ensure the presence of a '\0' character at the end of a date string, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted file.

CVE-2015-8730 epan/dissectors/packet-nbap.c in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the number of items, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid read operation and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2015-8733 The ngsniffer_process_record function in wiretap/ngsniffer.c in the Sniffer file parser in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the relationships between record lengths and record header lengths, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted file.

CVE-2016-2523 The dnp3_al_process_object function in epan/dissectors/packet-dnp.c in the DNP3 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.10 and 2.0.x before 2.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2016-4006 epan/proto.c in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 does not limit the protocol-tree depth, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack memory consumption and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2016-4078 The IEEE 802.11 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 does not properly restrict element lists, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (deep recursion and application crash) via a crafted packet, related to epan/dissectors/packet-capwap.c and epan/dissectors/packet-ieee80211.c.

CVE-2016-4079 epan/dissectors/packet-pktc.c in the PKTC dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 does not verify BER identifiers, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2016-4080 epan/dissectors/packet-pktc.c in the PKTC dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 misparses timestamp fields, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2016-4081 epan/dissectors/packet-iax2.c in the IAX2 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 uses an incorrect integer data type, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet.

CVE-2016-4085 Stack-based buffer overflow in epan/dissectors/packet-ncp2222.inc in the NCP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long string in a packet.

Impact

If Wireshark is launched manually by a user with Advanced Shell ( bash ) access, dissection of specially crafted packets could cause Wireshark to consume excessive resources. Wireshark is not part of normal BIG-IP operation; only users who actively run Wireshark are vulnerable.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K01837042.
