Description Martin Prpič 2016-01-06 05:08:06 EST
It was reported that Wireshark's Sniffer file parser could crash. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

This flaw is fixed in the following Wireshark versions: 2.0.1, 1.12.9.
