  - CVE-2018-5335: WCP dissector could crash (bsc#1075738)

  - CVE-2017-17935: Incorrect handling of '\n' in
    file_read_line function could have lead to denial of
    service (bsc#1074171) This release no longer enables the
    Linux kernel BPF JIT compiler via the
    net.core.bpf_jit_enable sysctl, as this would make
    systems more vulnerable to Spectre variant 1
    CVE-2017-5753 - (bsc#1075748) Further bug fixes and
    updated protocol support as listed in:
    https://www.wireshark.org/docs/relnotes/wireshark-2.2.12

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues."
