Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-01-21 09:25:52 UTC
Marc Schoenefeld found a heap-based buffer overflow in Wireshark, when reading certain capture files.

A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause wireshark executable
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running wireshark, if the local user opened a
specially-crafted capture file.

This only affects wireshark < 1.2
