Date: August 29, 2017
Affected versions: 2.4.0, 2.2.0 to 2.2.8, 2.0.0 to 2.0.14
Fixed versions: 2.4.1, 2.2.9, 2.0.15
Wireshark bug 13933
The MSDP dissector could go into an infinite loop. Discovered by Zhangwangjunjie and Marco Grass.
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 2.4.1, 2.2.9, 2.0.15 or later.
Riverbed is Wireshark's primary sponsor and provides our funding. They also make great products that fully integrate with Wireshark.
