Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-05-20 12:29:55 EDT
A denial of service flaw was found in the way ASN.1 BER dissector of Wireshark, a network traffic analyzer, processed certain ASN.1 BER packet capture files. Remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted ASN.1 BER packet capture file that, when processed would lead to tshark executable crash.

As per http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2013/q2/378 , this issue has been split into two CVEs, the following explanation has been given by MITRE:

"Use CVE-2013-3556 for the Bug 8599 issue addressed in r48943.

Use CVE-2013-3557 for the Bug 8599 issue addressed in r48944.

It is possible that CVE-2013-3556 only affects people who made their
own builds from the Wireshark trunk, and does not affect users of any
Wireshark release. Although MITRE does not always assign CVE names for
such development-code issues, in this case it is useful for clarifying
the scope of CVE-2013-3557."

This bug is being used for CVE-2013-3557. CVE-2013-3556 is filed separately.
