Wireshark Lucent/Ascend File Parser Denial of Service Vulnerability

Wireshark is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly handle specially crafted packets.

An attacker can exploit this issue to trigger an infinite loop, which causes the affected application to crash, denying service to legitimate users.

The following versions are vulnerable:

Wireshark versions 1.2.0 through 1.2.17
Wireshark versions 1.4.0 through 1.4.7
Wireshark version 1.6.0
