If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

To mitigate this vulnerability, you can use the tcpdump utility to perform packet captures instead of the tshark utility. For information about the tcpdump utility, refer to K411: Overview of packet tracing with the tcpdump utility.
