Date: December 30, 2007
Bugs: #199958
ID: 200712-23

Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark, allowing
for the remote execution of arbitrary code and a Denial of Service.

Background
==========

Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer with a graphical front-end.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-analyzer/wireshark < 0.99.7 >= 0.99.7

Description
===========

Multiple buffer overflows and infinite loops were discovered in
multiple dissector and parser components, including those for MP3 and
NCP (CVE-2007-6111), PPP (CVE-2007-6112), DNP (CVE-2007-6113), SSL and
iSeries (OS/400) Communication traces (CVE-2007-6114), ANSI MAP
(CVE-2007-6115), Firebird/Interbase (CVE-2007-6116), HTTP
(CVE-2007-6117), MEGACO (CVE-2007-6118), DCP ETSI (CVE-2007-6119),
Bluetooth SDP (CVE-2007-6120), RPC Portmap (CVE-2007-6121), SMB
(CVE-2007-6438), IPv6 amd USB (CVE-2007-6439), WiMAX (CVE-2007-6441),
RPL (CVE-2007-6450), CIP (CVE-2007-6451). The vulnerabilities were
discovered by Stefan Esser, Beyond Security, Fabiodds, Peter Leeming,
Steve and ainsley.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets on a network
being monitored with Wireshark or entice a user to open a specially
crafted file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running Wireshark (which might be the
root user), or a Denial of Service.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/wireshark-0.99.7"
