Description Vincent Danen 2012-08-15 16:54:40 EDT
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Affects 1.8.0 to 1.8.1 and is fixed in upstream 1.8.2 version.



This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2012-08-15 17:32:01 EDT
Sorry, this issue only affects rawhide/Fedora 18 which currently provides 1.8.1; earlier versions of Fedora provide 1.6.x.
Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2012-08-15 18:05:02 EDT
