Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-01-20 06:22:01 UTC
An integer overflow flaw leading to denial of service (application crash) was found in the way wireshark parsed files in the IPTrace capture format. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by convincing someone to read a malformed IPTrace packet capture file.  This is corrected in upstream 1.4.11 and 1.6.5.
