Description

Buffer overflow in the MAC-LTE dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-mac-lte.c) in Wireshark 1.2.0 through 1.2.13 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large number of RARs.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-wireshark
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-wireshark-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-wireshark-gnome

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
