Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2012-10-03 01:40:59 EDT
A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the wireshark processed certain Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) (RFC 3036) packets. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
