Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-04-19 01:23:31 EDT
A Use-after-free flaw causing a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the 
X.509if dissector of Wireshark 1.2.0 to 1.2.15 and 1.4.0 to 1.4.4. 

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.
