<title>Wireshark: Denial of Service</title>
Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in
<product type="ebuild">wireshark</product>

Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer with a graphical front-end.
Multiple vulnerabilities related to memory management were discovered
in the GSM SMS dissector (CVE-2008-3137), the PANA and KISMET
dissectors (CVE-2008-3138), the RTMPT dissector (CVE-2008-3139), the
syslog dissector (CVE-2008-3140) and the RMI dissector (CVE-2008-3141)
and when reassembling fragmented packets (CVE-2008-3145).
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a
specially crafted packet on a network being monitored by Wireshark or
enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file, causing 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-1.0.2&quot;</code>
