Description Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-01-28 17:57:45 UTC

Babi discovered several buffer overflows in the LWRES dissector.
Versions affected: 0.9.15 to 1.0.10, 1.2.0 to 1.2.5 


It may be possible to make Wireshark crash remotely or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Upgrade to Wireshark 1.2.6 or later.

CVE-2010-0304 (
  Multiple buffer overflows in the LWRES dissector in Wireshark 0.9.15
  through 1.0.10 and 1.2.0 through 1.2.5 allow remote attackers to
  cause a denial of service (crash) via a malformed packet, as
  demonstrated using a stack-based buffer overflow to the
  dissect_getaddrsbyname_request function.

Sounds like an app crash to me.
