Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-01 23:05:04 UTC
From $URL:

Wireshark 1.4.0, 1.2.x, and 1.0.x are vulnerable to a stack overflow in the BER
dissector as described at

This has been fixed in r34111; this bug report exists mainly to get the sample
capture that the NCNIPC sent into the fuzz menagerie.
Comment 1 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-12 02:31:59 UTC
Wireshark 1.2.12 has been released.
Comment 2 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-14 14:47:29 UTC
Thank you Tim! 1.2.12 was just added to the tree. Arch teams, please, stabilize it. Note although upstream bug is still opened release notes mention this vulnerability to be fixed there.

CVE-2010-3445 (
  Stack consumption vulnerability in the dissect_ber_unknown function in
  epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in the BER dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before
  1.4.1 and 1.2.x before 1.2.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via a long string in an unknown
  ASN.1/BER encoded packet, as demonstrated using SNMP.
