CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
This host is installed with Wireshark and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws exists due to, - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-rgmp.c script within the RGMP dissector which could crash. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-msnip.c script within the MSNIP dissector which misuses a NULL pointer. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-btl2cap.c script within the Bluetooth L2CAP dissector which could divide by zero. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c script within the openSAFETY dissector which could crash or exhaust system memory. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-dcm.c script within the DICOM dissector which could go into an infinite loop. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-slsk.c script within the SoulSeek dissector which could go into an infinite loop. - An error in the epan/dissectors/packet-dns.c script within the DNS dissector which could go into an infinite loop. - An error in epan/dissectors/packet-bzr.c script within the Bazaar dissector which could go into an infinite loop. - An error in epan/dissectors/packet-bootp.c script within the DHCP dissector which could read past the end of a buffer.

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow attacker to crash wireshark or consume excessive CPU resources.

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".
