Description Murray McAllister 2014-08-01 03:03:04 UTC
It was reported that Wireshark's ASN.1 BER dissector could crash. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

This is reported to affect Wireshark versions 1.10.0 to 1.10.8. It is fixed in 1.10.9.
