3. Description:

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

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the Wireshark SigComp
Universal Decompressor Virtual Machine (UDVM) 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-2010-2287, CVE-2010-2995)

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-2010-1455, CVE-2010-2283, CVE-2010-2284,
CVE-2010-2286)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Wireshark version 1.0.15, 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.
