Description

The "decode as" feature in packet-bssap.c in the SCCP dissector in Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) 0.99.6 through 0.99.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-suse-release
  • suse-upgrade-wireshark
  • suse-upgrade-wireshark-devel

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.
