Insight

Insight

The multiple flaws are due to, - An error in 'epan/proto.c' script cause OpenFlow dissector (and possibly others) to go into a long loop. - The 'epan/dissectors/packet-ldss.c' script in the LDSS dissector mishandles conversations. - An Off-by-one error in 'epan/dissectors/packet-rlc.c' script in the RLC dissector. - The 'epan/dissectors/packet-rlc.c' in the RLC dissector uses an incorrect integer data type. - An error in 'epan/dissectors/packet-wsp.c' script cause WSP dissector to go into a long loop. - An error in 'epan/dissectors/packet-packetbb.c' script could cause a divide-by-zero error in PacketBB dissector.
