Description Martin Prpič 2016-02-29 04:36:29 EST
Wireshark is vulnerable to DLL hijacking as described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2269637:

https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/2269637

It may be possible to make Wireshark to run hostile code by placing a specially-coded DLL in the same directory as a capture file.
