Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2010-06-15 20:06:53 UTC
Created wireshark tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 549580]

Comment 9 Vincent Danen 2010-07-08 14:17:44 UTC
This is a stack memory exhaustion issue, which means this is a relatively harmless crash.  As a result, this is a low impact issue.

Comment 10 Jan Safranek 2010-07-28 13:53:33 UTC
Upstream seems to have fixed the recursion issue, see https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4984#c14.

It's reproducible using upstream capture http://www.wireshark.org/download/automated/captures/fuzz-2010-07-12-1799.pcap (loops infinitely) and http://www.wireshark.org/download/automated/captures/fuzz-2010-07-06-23547.pcap (crashes).

$ tshark -nVr fuzz-2010-07-06-23547.pcap  "frame.number != 0" >/dev/null
Running as user "root" and group "root". This could be dangerous.
Segmentation fault

Both these issues (endless loop, crash) are reproducible only with unpatched upstream versions of wireshark-1.0.14, our old RHEL-5 version (1.0.8) does not crash!
