Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Wireshark, which can potentially be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise a user's system.
1) A vulnerability is caused due to a format string error within the PN-DCP dissector when processing station names or alias names containing format string specifiers. This can be exploited to cause a crash and potentially execute arbitrary code via specially crafted packets captured off the wire or loaded via a capture file.
2) An error within the LDAP dissector can be exploited to cause a crash.
Note: This only affects the Windows version.
3) An error within the Check Point High-Availability Protocol (CPHAP) dissector can be exploited to cause a crash.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.0.7.
