Description

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed packet off a network or opened a malformed dump file, it could crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2008-4683, CVE-2009-0599)

Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or opened a malformed dump file. (CVE-2008-4680, CVE-2008-4681, CVE-2008-4682,CVE-2008-4684, CVE-2008-4685, CVE-2008-5285, CVE-2009-0600)

All running instances of Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
