Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-29 10:14:32 EST
An out of heap-based buffer bounds read flaw was found in the way Wireshark, a network traffic analyzer, performed dissection of certain ISAKMP packets. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted ISAKMP packet / packet capture that, when processed, would lead to wireshark executable crash.
