Docid: wnpa-sec-2008-02

Date: March 31, 2008

Wireshark 1.0.0 fixes the following vulnerabilities:

    * The X.509sat dissector could crash. (Bug 2329)
      Versions affected: 0.99.5 to 0.99.8
    * The Roofnet dissector could crash on Windows, Solaris, and other platforms. (Bug 2331)
      Versions affected: 0.99.5 to 0.99.8

It may be possible to make Wireshark crashby injecting a purposefully malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Upgrade to Wireshark 1.0.0 or later.

Fixed in release snapshot.
Comment 11 Matthias Geerdsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-12 13:55:31 UTC
only a DoS, but since we issued GLSAs for wireshark DoS before, we should probably issue one again

-> (half) yes
Comment 12 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-23 16:42:43 UTC
I'd consider wireshark more A then B, so I'm also in for a YES.

GLSA request filed
