Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-04-19 05:41:00 UTC
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the DECT dissector of
wireshark versions 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.
