Wireshark IEEE 802.11 Dissector Infinite Loop Denial of Service Vulnerability

Wireshark is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly handle certain types of packets.

Attackers can exploit this issue to cause the application to enter an infinite loop which may cause denial-of-service conditions.

Wireshark 1.6.0 to 1.6.5 are vulnerable.
