Description

The unxorFrame function in epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c in the OpenSafety dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not properly validate a certain frame size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and application crash) via a malformed packet.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-1_6_2
