Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-10 08:05:49 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2013-4080 to the following vulnerability:

The dissect_r3_upstreamcommand_queryconfig function in epan/dissectors/packet-assa_r3.c in the Assa Abloy R3 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.8 does not properly handle a zero-length item, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and CPU and memory consumption) via a crafted packet.

The version of wireshark shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 does not have support for Assa Abloy R3 Protocol. Therefore this flaw does not affect these versions.

Not Vulnerable. This issue does not affect the version of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
