Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-01-30 13:31:32 UTC
In Wireshark 3.2.x before 3.2.1, the WASSP dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wassp.c by using >= and <= to resolve off-by-one errors.

Created wireshark tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1796460]

Comment 2 Riccardo Schirone 2020-02-11 09:56:09 UTC
The vulnerable code was added in https://code.wireshark.org/review/gitweb?p=wireshark.git;a=commit;h=c7854720c805ad3b96c1ceecff3be547f5748830, which extends the WASSP dissector. The commit first appeared in wireshark v3.1.0.

Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, and 8 as they did not include the vulnerable code.
