Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-09 (Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Wireshark dissectors have been found vulnerable to a large number of     exploits, including off-by-one errors, buffer overflows, format string     overflows and an infinite loop.

Impact :

Running an affected version of Wireshark or Ethereal could allow for a     remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the user's computer by     sending specially crafted packets.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
