Description

Two flaws were found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed packet off a network or opened a malicious dump file, it could crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2013-3559, CVE-2013-4083)

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 malicious dump file. (CVE-2012-2392, CVE-2012-3825, CVE-2012-4285, CVE-2012-4288, CVE-2012-4289, CVE-2012-4290, CVE-2012-4291, CVE-2012-4292, CVE-2012-5595, CVE-2012-5597, CVE-2012-5598, CVE-2012-5599, CVE-2012-5600, CVE-2012-6056, CVE-2012-6059, CVE-2012-6060, CVE-2012-6061, CVE-2012-6062, CVE-2013-3557, CVE-2013-3561, CVE-2013-4081, CVE-2013-4927, CVE-2013-4931, CVE-2013-4932, CVE-2013-4933, CVE-2013-4934, CVE-2013-4935, CVE-2013-4936, CVE-2013-5721)

The wireshark packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.8.10, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions. For more information on the bugs fixed, enhancements included, and supported protocols introduced, refer to the Wireshark Release Notes.

This update also fixes the following bugs :

  • Previously, Wireshark did not parse the RECLAIM-COMPLETE opcode when inspecting traffic generated by NFSv4.1. A patch has been provided to enable the parsing of the RECLAIM_COMPLETE opcode, and Wireshark is now able to properly dissect and handle NFSv4.1 traffic.

  • Prior to this update, frame arrival times in a text file were reported one hour ahead from the timestamps in the packet capture file. This resulted in various failures being reported by the dfilter-test.py test suite. To fix this bug, frame arrival timestamps have been shifted by one hour, thus fixing this bug.

This update also fixes the following bugs :

  - Previously, Wireshark did not parse the RECLAIM-COMPLETE
    opcode when inspecting traffic generated by NFSv4.1. A
    patch has been provided to enable the parsing of the
    RECLAIM_COMPLETE opcode, and Wireshark is now able to

  - Prior to this update, frame arrival times in a text file
    were reported one hour ahead from the timestamps in the
    packet capture file. This resulted in various failures
    being reported by the dfilter-test.py test suite. To fix
    this bug, frame arrival timestamps have been shifted by
    one hour, thus fixing this bug.

  - The 'tshark -D' command returned output to STDERR
    instead of STDOUT, which could break scripts that are
    parsing the 'tshark -D' output. This bug has been fixed,
    and the 'tshark -D' command now writes output data to a
    correct standard stream.

  - Due to an array overrun, Wireshark could experience
    undefined program behavior or could unexpectedly
    terminate. With this update, proper array handling
    ensures Wireshark no longer crashes in the described
    scenario.

  - Previously, the dftest and randpkt command line
    utilities lacked manual pages. This update adds proper
    manual pages for both utilities.

In addition, this update adds the following enhancements :

  - With this update, Wireshark is able to properly dissect
    and handle InfiniBand and GlusterFS traffic.

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