Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] And again BER errors while decoding H248 packets
Hello,

  Some time ago Eugene Tarlovskij posted the message about BER errors
  while decoding H248 packets. Here are the links to his posts:

  http://www.wireshark.org/lists/ethereal-dev/200605/msg01641.html
  http://www.wireshark.org/lists/ethereal-dev/200605/msg01723.html

  The solution he proposed was to change packet-ber.cpp:

      if((len!=0)&&(count==0)&&(seq->flags&BER_FLAGS_OPTIONAL)){

      change to:

      if((len!=0)&&(count==0)&&(count!=length_remaining)&&(seq->flags&BER_FLAGS_OPTIONAL)){

  (This is currently line number 1222).

  However, Eugene's patch was rejected and another patch was proposed
  by Tim Endean.
  http://www.wireshark.org/lists/ethereal-dev/200606/msg01532.html

  Lines 1076-1080:

       if(ind_field && (len == 2)){
           /* disgusting indefinite length zero length field, what are these people doing */
         offset = eoffset;
         continue;
       }

  This patch is currently checked in, but doesn't work well enough.
  Please, take a look at this packet that I've captured (in attach).
  Here's a fragment of its decoding:
  
    Item: mediaDescriptor (1)
      mediaDescriptor
        termStateDescr
          BER Error: Wrong field in SEQUENCE  expected class:2 (CONTEXT) tag:0 but found class:2 tag:2
        streams: oneStream (0)
          oneStream
            localControlDescriptor
              reserveValue: False
              reserveGroup: False

  With Eugene's patch this looks like this:
  
    Item: mediaDescriptor (1)
      mediaDescriptor
        termStateDescr
          propertyParms: 0 items
          serviceState: inSvc (2)
        streams: oneStream (0)
          oneStream
            localControlDescriptor
              reserveValue: False
              reserveGroup: False

  Would you please review both patches again, to see what's wrong with
  them. As for me, the Eugene's patch works just fine, but I don't
  actually understand the code well enough to make any conclusions.
  Probably, you would be able to make another patch, which would be
  better than these two.

  Thanks.

  Attached is the hex dump of the problematic packet.
