Description

In Wireshark 2.6.0, 2.4.0 to 2.4.6, and 2.2.0 to 2.2.14, the DNS dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dns.c by avoiding a NULL pointer dereference for an empty name in an SRV record.

Solution(s)

  • wireshark-upgrade-2_2_15
  • wireshark-upgrade-2_4_7
  • wireshark-upgrade-2_6_1
