upstream patch to correct the issue

Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2009-12-22 02:14:21 UTC
This is corrected in the upstream 1.2.5 release of wireshark.

This release also corrected CVE-2009-4376 (buffer overflow in the daintree_sna_read function), but only affected versions 1.2.0 through 1.2.4 and as such did not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  This CVE does affect Fedora 11 and 12.

It also corrected CVE-2009-4378 (IPMI dissector could crash when running on Windows), but only affected versions 1.2.0 through 1.2.4 on the Windows operating system.

CVE-2009-4377 does affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2009-12-23 21:32:59 UTC
wireshark-1.2.5-3.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 9 Vincent Danen 2010-01-29 01:20:53 UTC
This has been corrected upstream in the 1.0.x branch (1.0.11):

The SMB and SMB2 dissectors could crash.
Fixed in trunk: r31187
