Description

The DCERPC/NT dissector in Wireshark 0.10.10 through 1.0.9 and 1.2.0 through 1.2.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a file that records a malformed packet trace. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-1_0_10
  • wireshark-upgrade-1_2_3
