Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Wireshark network traffic analyzer. It was discovered that null pointer dereferences, buffer overflows and infinite loops in the SMB, SMB PIPE, ASN1.1 and SigComp dissectors could lead to denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.2-3+lenny9.

For the upcoming stable distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.9-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.
