143350 : The Remote Host Has An Application That Is Affected By Multiple\nvulnerabilities

Risk 5 : Windows

The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The Daintree SNA file parser can overflow a buffer. (Bug 4294)

- The SMB and SMB2 dissectors can crash. (Bug 4301)

- The IPMI dissector can crash on Windows. (Bug 4319)

These vulnerabilities can result in a denial of service, or possibly arbitrary code execution. A remote attacker can exploit these issues by tricking a user into opening a maliciously crafted capture file. Additionally, if Wireshark is running in promiscuous mode, one of these issues can be exploited remotely (from the same network segment).

Solution:

Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.2.5 or later.
