Wireshark Multiple Denial-of-Service Vulnerabilities-03 January16 (Windows)

Published: 2016-01-11 06:29:19
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

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

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

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws exist due to - 'init_t38_info_conv' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-t38.c' script in the T.38 dissector does not ensure that a conversation exists. - 'epan/dissectors/packet-alljoyn.c' in the AllJoyn dissector does not check for empty arguments. - 'dissect_dcom_OBJREF' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-dcom.c' script in the DCOM dissecto does not initialize a certain IPv4 data structure. - 'epan/dissectors/packet-umts_fp.c' script in the UMTS FP dissector does not properly reserve memory for channel ID mappings. - 'dissect_dns_answer' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-dns.c' script in the DNS dissector mishandles the EDNS0 Client Subnet option. - 'dissect_sdp' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-sdp.c' script in the SDP dissector does not prevent use of a negative media count. - 'dissect_hsdsch_channel_info' function in 'epan/dissectors/packet-umts_fp.c' script in the UMTS FP dissector does not validate the number of PDUs.

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to conduct denial of service attack.

Affected Versions:
Wireshark version 1.12.x before 1.12.9 on Windows

Recommendations:
Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.12.9 or later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:

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".
