Description

Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) 0.10.14 through 1.0.2 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a packet with crafted zlib-compressed data that triggers an invalid read in the tvb_uncompress function.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ethereal
  • suse-upgrade-ethereal-devel
  • 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.
