Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark:
<ul><li>Ryan Giobbi reported an integer overflow in wiretap/erf.c
<li>The vendor reported multiple unspecified
vulnerabilities in the Bluetooth L2CAP, RADIUS, and MIOP dissectors
(CVE-2009-2560), in the OpcUa dissector (CVE-2009-3241), in packet.c in
the GSM A RR dissector (CVE-2009-3242), in the TLS dissector
(CVE-2009-3243), in the Paltalk dissector (CVE-2009-3549), in the
DCERPC/NT dissector (CVE-2009-3550), and in the
dissect_negprot_response() function in packet-smb.c in the SMB
dissector (CVE-2009-3551).</li>
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted "erf"
file using Wireshark, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application. A remote
attacker could furthermore send specially crafted packets on a network
being monitored by Wireshark or entice a user to open a malformed
packet trace file using Wireshark, possibly resulting in a Denial of
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-1.2.3&quot;</code>
