Name: DNS dissector crash
Date: December 29, 2015
Affected versions: 1.12.0 to 1.12.8
Fixed versions: 1.12.9
The DNS dissector could crash. Discovered by Boaz Brickner.
It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
Upgrade to Wireshark 1.12.9 or later.
