Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer with a graphical front-end.
Multiple buffer overflows and infinite loops were discovered in
multiple dissector and parser components, including those for MP3 and
NCP (CVE-2007-6111), PPP (CVE-2007-6112), DNP (CVE-2007-6113), SSL and
iSeries (OS/400) Communication traces (CVE-2007-6114), ANSI MAP
(CVE-2007-6115), Firebird/Interbase (CVE-2007-6116), HTTP
(CVE-2007-6117), MEGACO (CVE-2007-6118), DCP ETSI (CVE-2007-6119),
Bluetooth SDP (CVE-2007-6120), RPC Portmap (CVE-2007-6121), SMB
(CVE-2007-6438), IPv6 amd USB (CVE-2007-6439), WiMAX (CVE-2007-6441),
RPL (CVE-2007-6450), CIP (CVE-2007-6451). The vulnerabilities were
discovered by Stefan Esser, Beyond Security, Fabiodds, Peter Leeming,
Steve and ainsley.
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets on a network
being monitored with Wireshark or entice a user to open a specially
crafted file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running Wireshark (which might be the
root user), or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/wireshark-0.99.7&quot;</code>
