Description Vincent Danen 2010-08-12 23:20:08 UTC
Upstream has released wireshark 1.2.10 [1] which corrects a number of vulnerabilities:

The SigComp Universal Decompressor Virtual Machine could overrun a buffer. (Bug 4867) 
Versions affected: 0.10.8 to 1.0.14, 1.2.0 to 1.2.9 

Due to a regression the ASN.1 BER dissector could exhaust stack memory. (Bug 4984) 
Versions affected: 0.10.13 to 1.0.14, 1.2.0 to 1.2.9 

The GSM A RR dissector could crash. (Bug 4897) 
Versions affected: 1.2.2 to 1.2.9 CVE-2010-2992

The IPMI dissector could go into an infinite loop. (Bug 5053) 
Versions affected: 1.2.0 to 1.2.9 CVE-2010-2993

Current Fedora 12 and 13 are vulnerable to these issues.  CVE-2010-2995 is already tracked via bug #604308 and CVE-2010-2994 only applies to releases of wireshark 1.2.9 that claimed to fix CVE-2284 (bug #604292).  As we did not make any releases of 1.2.9, that CVE should not be used in any updates.
