DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Wireshark, which can
be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) An error in the USB dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-usb.c) can
be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources via
a specially crafted packet.

2) An error in the sFlow dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-sflow.c)
can be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources
via a specially crafted packet.

3) An error in the SCTP dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-sctp.c) can
be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources via a
specially crafted packet.

4) An error in the EIGRP dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-eigrp.c)
can be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources
via a specially crafted packet.

5) An error within the ISAKMP dissector
(epan/dissectors/packet-isakmp.c) when handling IKEv2 data can be
exploited to cause a crash.

6) An error in the iSCSI dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-iscsi.c)
can be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources
via a specially crafted packet.

7) An error in the WTP dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-wtp.c) can
be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources via
a specially crafted packet.

8) An error in the RTCP dissector (epan/dissectors/packet-rtcp.c) can
be exploited to cause an infinite loop and consume CPU resources via a
specially crafted packet.

9) An error in the 3GPP2 A11 dissector
(epan/dissectors/packet-3g-a11.c) can be exploited to cause an
infinite loop and consume CPU resources via a specially crafted
packet.

10) An error in the ICMPv6 dissector
(epan/dissectors/packet-icmpv6.c) can be exploited to cause an
infinite loop and consume CPU resources via a specially crafted
packet.

NOTE: Additionally, a weakness exists due to the application
disclosing hostname information when creating Pcap-ng files.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.8.4 and
1.6.12.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.8.4 or 1.6.12.
