Name: TNEF dissector infinite loop
Date: March 4, 2015
Affected versions: 1.12.0 to 1.12.3, 1.10.0 to 1.10.10
Fixed versions: 1.12.4, 1.10.13
Wireshark bug 11023
The TNEF dissector could go into an infinite loop. Discovered by Vlad Tsyrklevich.
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.12.4, 1.10.13 or later.
Riverbed is Wireshark's primary sponsor and provides our funding. They also make great products that fully integrate with Wireshark.
