Description

New Wireshark packages that fix various security vulnerabilities are now available. Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Bugs were found in Wireshark's SCSI and SSCOP protocol dissectors. Ethereal could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-4330, CVE-2006-4333)

An off-by-one bug was found in the IPsec ESP decryption preference parser. Ethereal could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-4331)

Users of Wireshark or Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages containing Wireshark version 0.99.3, which is not vulnerable to these issues. These packages also fix a bug in the PAM configuration of the Wireshark packages which prevented non-root users starting a capture.
