Description

The DTLS dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.14 and 1.8.x before 1.8.6 does not validate the fragment offset before invoking the reassembly state machine, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a large offset value that triggers write access to an invalid memory location.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-1_6_14
  • wireshark-upgrade-1_8_6

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.
