Several issues in wireshark, a tool that captures and analyzes packets 
off the wire, have been found by different people.
These are basically issues with length checks or invalid memory access in 
different dissectors. This could result in infinite loops or crashes by 
malicious packets.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.
