Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200909-16 (Wireshark: Denial of Service)

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Wireshark:
A     buffer overflow in the IPMI dissector related to an array index error     (CVE-2009-2559).
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the     Bluetooth L2CAP, RADIUS, and MIOP dissectors (CVE-2009-2560).
An unspecified vulnerability in the sFlow dissector     (CVE-2009-2561).
An unspecified vulnerability in the AFS     dissector (CVE-2009-2562).
An unspecified vulnerability in the     Infiniband dissector when running on unspecified platforms     (CVE-2009-2563).

Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending     specially crafted packets on a network being monitored by Wireshark or     by enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file to cause a     Denial of Service.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
