Published: 2011-03-15 13:58:18
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'wireshark' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
wireshark on Mandriva Linux 2010.0, Mandriva Linux 2010.0/X86_64, Mandriva Linux 2010.1, Mandriva Linux 2010.1/X86_64, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5/X86_64

Technical Details:
This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.2.15), fixing several security issues: Wireshark 1.5.0, 1.4.3, and earlier frees an uninitialized pointer during processing of a .pcap file in the pcap-ng format, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a malformed file (CVE-2011-0538). Heap-based buffer overflow in wiretap/dct3trace.c in Wireshark 1.2.0 through 1.2.14 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long record in a Nokia DCT3 trace file (CVE-2011-0713). wiretap/pcapng.c in Wireshark 1.2.0 through 1.2.14 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a pcap-ng file that contains a large packet-length field (CVE-2011-1139). Multiple stack consumption vulnerabilities in the dissect_ms_compressed_string and dissect_mscldap_string functions in Wireshark 1.0.x, 1.2.0 through 1.2.14, and 1.4.0 through 1.4.3 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite recursion) via a crafted (1) SMB or (2) Connection-less LDAP (CLDAP) packet (CVE-2011-1140). epan/dissectors/packet-ldap.c in Wireshark 1.0.x, 1.2.0 through 1.2.14, and 1.4.0 through 1.4.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via (1) a long LDAP filter string or (2) an LDAP filter string containing many elements (CVE-2011-1141). Stack consumption vulnerability in the dissect_ber_choice function in the BER dissector in Wireshark 1.2.x through 1.2.15 and 1.4.x through 1.4.4 might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors involving self-referential ASN.1 CHOICE values (CVE-2011-1142). The updated Linux Distribution Packages have been upgraded to the latest 1.2.x version (1.2.15) and patched to correct these issues.

Recommendations:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
