Description

The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

  • The SMB dissector can be affected by a NULL pointer dereference. (Bug 4734)

  • The ANS.1 BER dissector can be affected by a buffer overflow.

  • The SMB PIPE dissector can be affected by a NULL pointer dereference on some platforms.

  • The SigComp Universal Decompressor Virtual Machine can be affected by an infinite loop or a buffer overflow. (Bug 4826, 4837)
