3. Description:

Wireshark, previously known as Ethereal, is a network protocol analyzer.
It is used to capture and browse the traffic running on a computer network.

Two flaws were found in Wireshark. 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-2013-3559,
CVE-2013-4083)

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-2012-2392, CVE-2012-3825, CVE-2012-4285,
CVE-2012-4288, CVE-2012-4289, CVE-2012-4290, CVE-2012-4291, CVE-2012-4292,
CVE-2012-5595, CVE-2012-5597, CVE-2012-5598, CVE-2012-5599, CVE-2012-5600,
CVE-2012-6056, CVE-2012-6059, CVE-2012-6060, CVE-2012-6061, CVE-2012-6062,
CVE-2013-3557, CVE-2013-3561, CVE-2013-4081, CVE-2013-4927, CVE-2013-4931,
CVE-2013-4932, CVE-2013-4933, CVE-2013-4934, CVE-2013-4935, CVE-2013-4936,
CVE-2013-5721)

The wireshark packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.8.10, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions.
For more information on the bugs fixed, enhancements included, and
supported protocols introduced, refer to the Wireshark Release Notes,
linked to in the References. (BZ#711024)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, Wireshark did not parse the RECLAIM-COMPLETE opcode when
inspecting traffic generated by NFSv4.1. A patch has been provided to
enable the parsing of the RECLAIM_COMPLETE opcode, and Wireshark is now
able to properly dissect and handle NFSv4.1 traffic. (BZ#750712)

* Prior to this update, frame arrival times in a text file were reported
one hour ahead from the timestamps in the packet capture file.
This resulted in various failures being reported by the dfilter-test.py
test suite. To fix this bug, frame arrival timestamps have been shifted by
one hour, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#832021)

* The "tshark -D" command returned output to STDERR instead of STDOUT,
which could break scripts that are parsing the "tshark -D" output. This bug
has been fixed, and the "tshark -D" command now writes output data to a
correct standard stream. (BZ#1004636)

* Due to an array overrun, Wireshark could experience undefined program
behavior or could unexpectedly terminate. With this update, proper array
handling ensures Wireshark no longer crashes in the described scenario.
(BZ#715560)

* Previously, the dftest and randpkt command line utilities lacked manual
pages. This update adds proper manual pages for both utilities. (BZ#659661)

In addition, this update adds the following enhancements:

* With this update, Wireshark is able to properly dissect and handle
InfiniBand and GlusterFS traffic. (BZ#699636, BZ#858976)

All Wireshark users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these
enhancements. 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
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
