Description

Multiple vulnerabilities was found and corrected in Wireshark :

  • The ANSI A dissector could dereference a NULL pointer and crash.

    • The IEEE 802.11 dissector could go into an infinite loop.

    • The pcap and pcap-ng file parsers could crash trying to read ERF data.

  • The MP2T dissector could try to allocate too much memory and crash.

This advisory provides the latest version of Wireshark (1.6.6) which is not vulnerable to these issues.
