Description Vincent Danen 2010-10-01 21:46:20 UTC
It was reported [1] that all of the BER dissectors in Wireshark were vulnerable to a stack overflow, which would cause Wireshark to crash.  The upstream bugzilla [2] includes a capture file that triggers the recursion in dissect_ber_unknown() to demonstrate the flaw.  This has been corrected upstream [3] and is scheduled to be included in the forthcoming 1.4.1 and 1.2.12 releases.
