Description Vincent Danen 2011-11-01 21:08:23 UTC
A flaw in the Infiniband dissector could cause Wireshark 1.4.0 through 1.4.9 and 1.6.0 through 1.6.3 to crash by dereferencing a NULL pointer by reading a malformed packet trace file or if someone were to inject a malformed packet onto the wire.  This is corrected in wireshark 1.6.3
