Description

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

  • CVE-2009-1210 A format string vulnerability was discovered in the PROFINET dissector.

  • CVE-2009-1268 The dissector for the Check Point High-Availability Protocol could be forced to crash.

  • CVE-2009-1269 Malformed Tektronix files could lead to a crash.

The old stable distribution (etch), is only affected by the CPHAP crash, which doesn't warrant an update on its own. The fix will be queued up for an upcoming security update or a point release.
