Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote macOS / Mac OS X host is prior to 3.4.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the wireshark-3.4.1 advisory.

  • Memory leak in Kafka protocol dissector in Wireshark 3.4.0 and 3.2.0 to 3.2.8 allows denial of service via packet injection or crafted capture file. (CVE-2020-26418)

  • Crash in USB HID protocol dissector and possibly other dissectors in Wireshark 3.4.0 and 3.2.0 to 3.2.8 allows denial of service via packet injection or crafted capture file. (CVE-2020-26421)

  • Memory leak in RTPS protocol dissector in Wireshark 3.4.0 and 3.2.0 to 3.2.8 allows denial of service via packet injection or crafted capture file. (CVE-2020-26420)

  • Memory leak in the dissection engine in Wireshark 3.4.0 allows denial of service via packet injection or crafted capture file. (CVE-2020-26419)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
