Version(s): 1.2.0 - 1.2.14, 1.4.0 - 1.4.33
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Wireshark. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions. A remote user may be able to cause arbitrary code to be executed.

A remote user can create a specially crafted pcap-ng file that, when loaded by the target user, will free an uninitialized pointer and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-0538]. Huzaifa Sidhpurwala of the Red Hat Security Response Team reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Nokia DCT3 file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-0713].

A remote user can send a specially crafted 6LoWPAN to cause the target service to crash when running on 32-bit systems. Paul Makowski of SEI/CERT reported this vulnerability [CVE-2011-1138]. Versions 1.4.0 to 1.4.3 are affected.

A remote user can send specially crafted LDAP and SMB data to trigger a stack overflow [CVE-2011-1140]. joernchen of Phenoelit reported this vulnerability. Versions 1.0.x are also affected.

A remote user can send specially crafted LDP Filter strings to consume excessive memory on the target system [CVE-2011-1141]. Xiaopeng Zhang of Fortinet's Fortiguard Labs reported this vulnerability. Versions 1.0.x are also affected.

A specially crafted pcap-ng file can trigger an application crash [CVE-2011-1139].

Specially crafted ASN.1 CHOICE values can trigger an infinite loop in in the BER dissector [CVE-2011-1142].

A specially crafted pcap file can trigger a crash in the NTLMSSP dissector [CVE-2011-1143].

Impact:   A remote user can cause the target service to crash or consume excessive memory.

A remote user may be able to cause arbitrary code to be executed.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (1.2.15, 1.4.4).
