Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-05-20 12:28:36 EDT
A denial of service flaw was found in the way PPP CCP dissector of Wireshark, a network traffic analyzer, processed certain PPP CCP packet capture files. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted PPP CCP packet capture file that, when processed, would lead to tshark executable crash.
