Buffer overflow in the MAC-LTE dissector
(epan/dissectors/packet-mac-lte.c) in Wireshark 1.2.0 through 1.2.13
and 1.4.0 through 1.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large number
of RARs.

Interestingly, the upstream bug refers to two patches:

http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=35298 fixes a buffer overflow in the engineId preferences (seems applicable to 1.0.x also), and http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=35292 fixes the buffer overflow in the MAC LTE dissector (not applicable to 1.0.x; this file is not shipped).
