Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-23 12:23:18 UTC
Infinite loop denial of service flaws were reported against various Wireshark dissectors:
[1] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6805 (802.11)
[2] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7118 (802.3)
[3] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7119 (ANSIMAP)
[4] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7120 (ASF)
[5] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7124 (LTP)

A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted packet capture file, which once opened in Wireshark could lead to denial of service.

Additional two CVE identifiers have been assigned to set of dissector flaws, as originally listed in this bugzilla:

1) CVE-2012-3825 (bug #836960) for the BACapp and Bluetooth HCI case,
2) CVE-2012-3826 (bug #836961) for the R3 dissector case.
