Date: August 15, 2012
Affected versions: 1.4.0 to 1.4.14, 1.6.0 to 1.6.9, 1.8.0 to 1.8.1
Fixed versions: 1.8.2, 1.6.10, 1.4.15
The CIP dissector could exhaust system memory. Reported by Ben Schmidt.
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive system resources 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, 1.4.15 or later.
