Description

In Wireshark 2.4.0, 2.2.0 to 2.2.8, and 2.0.0 to 2.0.14, the MSDP dissector could go into an infinite loop. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-msdp.c by adding length validation.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-2_0_15
  • wireshark-upgrade-2_2_9
  • wireshark-upgrade-2_4_1
