Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in Wireshark allow for the remote execution of
arbitrary code, or a Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-analyzer/wireshark       < 1.4.9                    >= 1.4.9 

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets on a network
being monitored by Wireshark, entice a user to open a malformed packet
trace file using Wireshark, or deploy a specially crafted Lua script
for use by Wireshark, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code, or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/wireshark-1.4.9"
