Description

Various security problems were fixed in the wireshark 0.99.6 release, which were backported to ethereal (predecessor of wireshark) :

  • Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted chunked encoding in an HTTP response, possibly related to a zero-length payload. (CVE-2007-3389)

  • Wireshark when running on certain systems, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted iSeries capture files that trigger a SIGTRAP. (CVE-2007-3390)

  • Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a malformed DCP ETSI packet that triggers an infinite loop. (CVE-2007-3391)

  • Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service via malformed (1) SSL or (2) MMS packets that trigger an infinite loop. (CVE-2007-3392)

  • Off-by-one error in the DHCP/BOOTP dissector in Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted DHCP-over-DOCSIS packets. (CVE-2007-3393)
