Description

Updated wireshark packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal.

Several flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2007-6112, CVE-2007-6114, CVE-2007-6115, CVE-2007-6117)

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2007-6111, CVE-2007-6113, CVE-2007-6116, CVE-2007-6118, CVE-2007-6119, CVE-2007-6120, CVE-2007-6121, CVE-2007-6438, CVE-2007-6439, CVE-2007-6441, CVE-2007-6450, CVE-2007-6451)

As well, Wireshark switched from using net-snmp to libsmi, which is included in this errata.

Users of wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Wireshark version 0.99.7, and resolve these issues.
