The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2005-2360 Memory allocation errors in the LDAP dissector can cause a denial of service. CVE-2005-2361 Various errors in the AgentX, PER, DOCSIS, RADIUS, Telnet, IS-IS, HTTP, DCERPC, DHCP and SCTP dissectors can cause a denial of service. CVE-2005-2363 Various errors in the SMPP, 802.3, H1 and DHCP dissectors can cause a denial of service. CVE-2005-2364 Null pointer dereferences in the WBXML and GIOP dissectors can cause a denial of service. CVE-2005-2365 A buffer overflow and null pointer dereferences in the SMB dissector can cause a denial of service. CVE-2005-2366 Wrong address calculation in the BER dissector can cause an infinite loop or abortion. CVE-2005-2367 Format string vulnerabilities in the several dissectors allow remote attackers to write to arbitrary memory locations and thus gain privileges.
