Description

The fragment_add_work function in epan/reassemble.c in Wireshark 0.8.19 through 1.0.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a series of fragmented packets with non-sequential fragmentation offset values, which lead to a buffer over-read.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-1_0_2

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.
