Description

In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.7, the OpenFlow dissector could crash with memory exhaustion, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-openflow_v5.c by ensuring that certain length values were sufficiently large.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-2_0_8
  • wireshark-upgrade-2_2_2
