Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-23 08:26:53 EDT
A memory allocation flaw was found in the DIAMETER dissector of Wireshark:
[1] https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7138

A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted packet capture file, which once opened in Wireshark could lead to denial of service (wireshark executable crash).
