Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-07-30 09:56:48 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2013-4929 to the following vulnerability:

The parseFields function in epan/dissectors/packet-dis-pdus.c in the DIS dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.9 and 1.10.x before 1.10.1 does not terminate packet-data processing after finding zero remaining bytes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop) via a crafted packet.
