Description Vincent Danen 2012-08-15 17:32:53 EDT
It may be possible to make Wireshark crash, hang, or execute code by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Affects 1.6.0 to 1.6.9, 1.8.0 to 1.8.1 and is fixed in upstream 1.8.2 and 1.6.10 versions.

Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
