3. Description:

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

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Wireshark Local Download
Sharing Service (LDSS) 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-2010-4300)

A denial of service flaw was 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-2010-3445)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Wireshark version 1.2.13, and resolve these issues. 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/):

639486 - CVE-2010-3445 wireshark: stack overflow in BER dissector
