We are not distributing the software, but we should use this potential new plugin internally in the company.
I think this should not be the case for a violation of the GPL.

Thank you very much for the information,
I will talk about to the people in my company.

Just remember that under the GPL if you distribute a modified version
you must distribute the source. And the GPL does not allow you to
distribute a GPLd program (like wireshark) linking against non open
libraries (except the OS runtime).

Before working on code you will not be able to distribute legally
think about it. You might prefer to extend a commercial protocol
analyzer, one for which you can legally distribute a plugin that links
to a proprietary library.

BTW I am not a lawyer, you should consult a copyright lawyer before
distributing in these conditions.
