Description

The decompress_sigcomp_message function in epan/sigcomp-udvm.c in the SigComp UDVM dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted packet.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-1_10_11
  • wireshark-upgrade-1_12_2
