Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark's LLT, IEEE
802.11, http, and tcp protocol dissectors. It was possible for
Wireshark to crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet
off the network. (CVE-2007-0456, CVE-2007-0457, CVE-2007-0458,
CVE-2007-0459)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages containing
Wireshark version 0.99.5, which is not vulnerable to these issues."
