Description

This update to wireshark 1.12.11 fixes a number issues in protocol dissectors that could have allowed a remote attacker to crash Wireshark or cause excessive CPU usage through specially crafted packages inserted into the network or a capture file.

  • The PKTC dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2016-22)

  • The PKTC dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2016-23)

  • The IAX2 dissector could go into an infinite loop (wnpa-sec-2016-24)

  • Wireshark and TShark could exhaust the stack (wnpa-sec-2016-25)

  • The GSM CBCH dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2016-26)

  • The NCP dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2016-28)

  • Further bug fixes and updated protocol support as listed in: https://www.wireshark.org/docs/relnotes/wireshark-1.12.1 1.html
