Description

The pcapng_read_packet_block function in wiretap/pcapng.c in the pcap-ng file parser in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.2 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via a crafted pcap-ng file.

Solution(s)

  • 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.
