Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 3.2.4. It is, therefore, affected by a DoS vulnerability as referenced in the wireshark-3.2.4 advisory.

  • It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file. (wireshark-bug-16476)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application
