Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-138 - This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.6.2), fixing several security issues. Untrusted search path vulnerability in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.9 and 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse Lua script in an unspecified directory. The csnStreamDissector function in epan/dissectors/packet-csn1.c in the CSN.1 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a malformed packet. Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a malformed capture file that leads to an invalid root tvbuff, related to a buffer exception handling vulnerability. The unxorFrame function in epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c in the OpenSafety dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not properly validate a certain frame size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a malformed packet. The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 1.6.x version which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Package : wireshark
Date : September 28, 2011
Affected: 2011.

Problem Description:

This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.6.2), fixing
several security issues:

Untrusted search path vulnerability in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.9
and 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows local users to gain privileges via a
Trojan horse Lua script in an unspecified directory (CVE-2011-3360).

The csnStreamDissector function in epan/dissectors/packet-csn1.c in the
CSN.1 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not initialize
a certain structure member, which allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet
(CVE-2011-3482).

Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a malformed capture file
that leads to an invalid root tvbuff, related to a buffer exception
handling vulnerability. (CVE-2011-3483).

The unxorFrame function in epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c in the
OpenSafety dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not properly
validate a certain frame size, which allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (loop and application crash) via a malformed packet
(CVE-2011-3484).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 1.6.x version
(1.6.2) which is not vulnerable to these issues.
