Description

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

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

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

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in Wireshark. If Wireshark opened a specially crafted capture file, it could crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2011-0024)

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 malicious dump file. (CVE-2010-3445, CVE-2011-0538, CVE-2011-1139, CVE-2011-1140, CVE-2011-1141, CVE-2011-1143)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running instances of Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
