Name: Wireshark NULL pointer vulnerabilities
Date: January 10, 2012
Affected versions: 1.4.0 to 1.4.10, 1.6.0 to 1.6.4
Fixed versions: 1.4.11, 1.6.5
References: Wireshark bug 6634
Wireshark was improperly handling NULL pointers when displaying packet information which could lead to a crash.
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 1.4.11, 1.6.5 or later.
Riverbed is Wireshark's primary sponsor and provides our funding. They also make great products that fully integrate with Wireshark.
