Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-10 08:06:19 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2013-4081 to the following vulnerability:

The http_payload_subdissector function in epan/dissectors/packet-http.c in the HTTP dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.16 and 1.8.x before 1.8.8 does not properly determine when to use a recursive approach, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption) via a crafted packet.
