Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Wireshark network traffic analyzer, which may lead to denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2007-6450 The RPL dissector could be tricked into an infinite loop.

  • CVE-2007-6451 The CIP dissector could be tricked into excessive memory allocation.
