Wireshark issue 11023.
The TNEF dissector could go into an infinite loop. Discovered by Vlad Tsyrklevich.
It may be possible to make Wireshark consume excessive CPU resources by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.12.4, 1.10.13 or later.
