Name: Wireshark GSM RLC MAC dissector buffer overflow
Date: August 15, 2012
Versions affected: 1.6.0 to 1.6.9, 1.8.0 to 1.8.1
Fixed in: 1.8.2, 1.6.10
The GSM RLC MAC dissector could overflow a buffer. Reported by Laurent Butti.
It may be possible to make Wireshark crash, hang, or execute code by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.8.2, 1.6.10 or later.
