Description

Integer overflow in the dissect_sack_chunk function in epan/dissectors/packet-sctp.c in the SCTP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted Duplicate TSN count.

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.
