An off-by-one error was found in the Wireshark, when dissecting Samba
packets. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted Samba
packet capture file, which once opened by an unsuspecting user would
lead to denial of service (Wireshark crash).
This issue does NOT affect the versions of the wireshark package, as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, or 5.
This issue affects the versions of the wireshark package, as shipped
