This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red

3. Description:

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Wireshark was
previously known as Ethereal.

Several flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark if it read a malformed
packet off the network. (CVE-2007-6114, CVE-2007-6115, CVE-2007-6117)

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could
crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network.
(CVE-2007-3389, CVE-2007-3390, CVE-2007-3391, CVE-2007-3392, CVE-2007-3392,
CVE-2007-3393, CVE-2007-6113, CVE-2007-6118, CVE-2007-6120, CVE-2007-6121,
CVE-2007-6450, CVE-2007-6451)

As well, Wireshark switched from using net-snmp to libsmi, which is
included in this errata.
