3. Description:

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

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read
a malformed packet off a network or opened a malformed dump file, it could
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark.
(CVE-2008-4683, CVE-2009-0599)

Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could
crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or
opened a malformed dump file. (CVE-2008-4680, CVE-2008-4681, CVE-2008-4682,
CVE-2008-4684, CVE-2008-4685, CVE-2008-5285, CVE-2009-0600)

Users of wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Wireshark version 1.0.6, and resolve these issues. All running instances of
Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
