Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-02-17 04:43:35 UTC
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way Wireshark
processes signalling traces generated by Gammu (www.gammu.org)
from Nokia DCT3 phones in Netmonitor mode.

An attacker could use this flaw to cause wireshark executable
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running wireshark, if the local user opened a
specially-crafted capture file.

The following upstream commit fixes this issue:
