Comment 1 Ratul Gupta 2013-12-18 13:24:28 UTC
Created wireshark tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1044512]

Comment 2 Peter Lemenkov 2013-12-18 14:37:54 UTC
Fix was backported to 1.10.3 already.

Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2013-12-18 18:15:12 UTC
(In reply to Peter Lemenkov from comment #2)
> Fix was backported to 1.10.3

That's fantastic news but doesn't mean you can close the bug.  Please leave it open.  This affects more than Fedora (if Fedora is fixed, feel free to note that in the _Fedora_ bug, not this one).

Thanks.

Comment 5 Vincent Danen 2013-12-18 18:55:12 UTC
This only affects wireshark 1.10.x, so Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is not affected.

Comment 6 Vincent Danen 2013-12-18 18:56:34 UTC
Statement:

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
