wireshark cap/pcap files from the regression test
Description of problem:
During the regression testing of bugs 604312, 590615 I have found that wireshark/tshark segfaults on several pcap files from a regression test.
This is a regression, previous version wireshark-1.2.9-2.el6 does not segfault.
Unfortunately I am not able to identify what was the origin of those segfaults in the passed and provide related bug/patch. There may be only one unfixed error in wireshark but also there may be several independent errors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always (tested on x86_64)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download attached archive
2. tar -xzf tshark_crashers.tar.gz
3. for FILE in crashers/*cap; do tshark -nVr $FILE &> /dev/null || echo $FILE; done;
It seems to be already reported (and fixed) upstream:
..and upstream fix (SVN rev. 33704) seem to fix the crashes.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
