Description Marian Rehak 2019-04-09 11:00:03 UTC
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Comment 1 Marian Rehak 2019-04-09 11:00:12 UTC
Created wireshark tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1697953]

Comment 3 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-15 15:30:35 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 as they did not include support for Ruby Marshal Object (RBM).

Comment 4 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-16 09:42:51 UTC
An infinite loop in the Rbm dissector is possible when a malformed packet is read on the wire or analyzed from a trace file.
