Insight

Insight

Multiple flaws exist due to - 'dissect_CPMSetBindings' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-mswsp.c' script in the MS-WSP dissector does not validate the column size. - 'dissect_ppi' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-ppi.c' script in the PPI dissector does not initialize a packet-header data structure. - 'ipmi_fmt_udpport' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-ipmi.c' script in the IPMI dissector improperly attempts to access a packet scope. - 'dissect_tds7_colmetadata_token' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-tds.c' script in the TDS dissector does not validate the number of columns. - 's7comm_decode_ud_cpu_szl_subfunc' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-s7comm_szl_ids.c' script in the S7COMM dissector does not validate the list count in an SZL response. - 'mp2t_find_next_pcr' function in 'wiretap/mp2t.c' script in the MP2T file parser does not reserve memory for a trailer. - 'get_value' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-btatt.c' script in the Bluetooth Attribute (aka BT ATT) dissector uses an incorrect integer data type. - 'dissect_nwp' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-nwp.c' script in the NWP dissector mishandles the packet type.
