Affected versions: 1.8.0 to 1.8.7
Fixed versions: 1.8.8
Wireshark bug 8760
The Ixia IxVeriWave file parser could overflow the heap. Discovered by Sachin Shinde.
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources and crash by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.8.8 or later.
