Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered network traffic
analyzer Wireshark. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-3137

The GSM SMS dissector is vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-3138

The PANA and KISMET dissectors are vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-3141

The RMI dissector could disclose system memory.

CVE-2008-3145

The packet reassembling module is vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-3933

The zlib uncompression module is vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-4683

The Bluetooth ACL dissector is vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-4684

The PRP and MATE dissectors are vulnerable to denial of service.

CVE-2008-4685

The Q931 dissector is vulnerable to denial of service.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.99.4-5.etch.3.

For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been
fixed in version 1.0.2-3+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.
