CVE-2012-5240 (
  Buffer overflow in the dissect_tlv function in epan/dissectors/packet-ldp.c
  in the LDP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.3 allows remote attackers
  to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have
  unspecified other impact via a malformed packet.

CVE-2012-5238 (
  epan/dissectors/packet-ppp.c in the PPP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before
  1.8.3 uses incorrect OUI data structures during the decoding of (1) PPP and
  (2) LCP data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (assertion failure and application exit) via a malformed packet.

CVE-2012-5237 (
  The dissect_hsrp function in epan/dissectors/packet-hsrp.c in the HSRP
  dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.3 allows remote attackers to cause a
  denial of service (infinite loop) via a malformed packet.
