  - The 'detect_version' function in 'wiretap/logcat.c' in the Android Logcat
  file parser does not check the length of the payload.
  - The 'fragment_add_work' function in 'epan/reassemble.c' in the packet-reassembly
  feature does not properly determine the defragmentation state in a case of an
  insufficient snapshot length.
  - 'epan/dissectors/packet-websocket.c' in the WebSocket dissector uses a
  recursive algorithm, which can result in a consumption of CPU resources.
  - The 'dissect_lbmr_pser' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-lbmr.c' in
  the LBMR dissector does not properly track the current offset and does not
  reject a zero length.");
