Description

Updated wireshark packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

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

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal.

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed packet off a network or opened a malformed dump file, it could crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2008-4683, CVE-2009-0599)

Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or opened a malformed dump file. (CVE-2008-4680, CVE-2008-4681, CVE-2008-4682, CVE-2008-4684, CVE-2008-4685, CVE-2008-5285, CVE-2009-0600)

Users of wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Wireshark version 1.0.6, and resolve these issues. All running instances of Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
