Wireshark CVE-2013-4082 Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Wireshark is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability.

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

Wireshark versions 1.8.0 through 1.8.7 are vulnerable.

Note: This issue was previously discussed in BID 60448 (Wireshark Multiple Buffer Overflow and Denial of Service), but has been moved to its own record for better documentation.
