New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 2.0.12 or 2.2.x prior to 2.2.6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the NetScaler file parser within file wiretap/netscaler.c when handling specially crafted capture files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7700)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the BGP dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-bgp.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7701)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the WBXML dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-wbxml.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7702)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the IMAP dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-imap.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the program. (CVE-2017-7703)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the DOF dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-dof.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. Note that this issue only applies to the 2.2.x version. (CVE-2017-7704)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the RPC over RDMA dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-rpcrdma.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7705)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the SIGCOMP dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-sigcomp.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7745)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the SLSK dissector in the dissect_slsk_pdu() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-slsk.c, when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7746)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the PacketBB dissector in the dissect_pbb_addressblock() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-packetbb.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the program. (CVE-2017-7747)

- An infinite loop condition condition exists in the WSP dissector within file epan/dissectors/packet-wsp.c when handling specially crafted packets or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-7748)

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 2.0.12 / 2.2.6 or later.
