3. Description:

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

A format string flaw was found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed
packet off a network or opened a malicious dump file, it could crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2009-1210)

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 malicious dump file. (CVE-2009-1268, CVE-2009-1269, CVE-2009-1829)

Users of wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Wireshark version 1.0.8, and resolve these issues. All running instances of
Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
