Name: Wireshark Infiniband dissector vulnerability
Date: November 1, 2011
Affected versions: 1.4.0 to 1.4.9, 1.6.0 to 1.6.2
Fixed versions: 1.6.3
Huzaifa Sidhpurwala of Red Hat Security Response Team discovered that the Infiniband dissector could dereference a NULL pointer.
It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.6.3 or later.
Riverbed is Wireshark's primary sponsor and provides our funding. They also make great products that fully integrate with Wireshark.
