Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.
Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Wireshark:
buffer overflow in the IPMI dissector related to an array index error
<li>Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the
Bluetooth L2CAP, RADIUS, and MIOP dissectors (CVE-2009-2560).</li>
<li>An unspecified vulnerability in the sFlow dissector
<li>An unspecified vulnerability in the AFS
dissector (CVE-2009-2562).</li>
<li>An unspecified vulnerability in the
Infiniband dissector when running on unspecified platforms
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending
specially crafted packets on a network being monitored by Wireshark or
by enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file to cause 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-1.2.1&quot;</code>
