3. Description:

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

An array index error, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow, was found
in the Wireshark ENTTEC dissector. 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-2010-4538)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue. All running instances of
Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

666894 - CVE-2010-4538 Wireshark: Stack-based array index error in ENTTEC dissector (upstream bug #5539)
