Description Florian Weimer 2013-10-23 03:44:08 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1022377 +++

wireshark-1.10.2-8 installs /usr/sbin/dumpcap with capabilities "= cap_net_admin,cap_net_raw+eip".  This should be "= cap_net_admin,cap_net_raw+ep" because these capabilities do not need to be inheritable.
