The CIP dissector could exhaust system memory. Reported by Ben Schmidt.
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive system resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.8.2, 1.6.10, 1.4.15 or later.
Riverbed is Wireshark's primary sponsor and provides our funding. They also make great products that fully integrate with Wireshark.
