New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.x prior to 2.0.8 or 2.2.x prior to 2.2.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the dissect_PNIO_C_SDU_RTC1() function in packet-pn-rtc-one.c that causes excessive looping. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted network traffic or a specially crafted capture file, to exhaust available resources. Note that this vulnerability only affects 2.2.x versions.
(CVE-2016-9372)

- A use-after-free error exists in the DCEPRC dissector due to improper handling of IA5 SMS decoding. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted network traffic or a specially crafted capture file, to cause the application to crash.
(CVE-2016-9373)

- A buffer over-read flaw exists in the AllJoyn dissector due to improper handling of signature lengths. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted network traffic or a specially crafted capture file, to cause the application to crash.
(CVE-2016-9374)

- A flaw exists in the DTN dissector in the display_metadata_block() function due to improper SDNV evaluation. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted network traffic or a specially crafted capture file, to cause an infinite loop. (CVE-2016-9375)

- Multiple flaws exist in the OpenFlow dissector in packet-openflow_v5.c due to improper handling of too short data lengths. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted network traffic or a specially crafted capture file, to cause the application to crash. (CVE-2016-9376)

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 2.0.8 / 2.2.2 or later.
