Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote macOS / Mac OS X host is prior to 3.4.3. It is, therefore, affected by vulnerabilities as referenced in the wireshark-3.4.3 advisory.

  • The USB HID dissector could leak memory. It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file. (CVE-2021-22173)

  • The USB HID dissector could crash. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file. (CVE-2021-22174)

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