Wireshark RDP Dissector Denial of Service Vulnerability

Wireshark is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly allocate memory.

An attacker can leverage this issue to crash the affected application, denying service to legitimate users.

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.
