Wireshark issue 13416.
The STANAG 4607 dissector could go into an infinite loop and consume memory. Discovered by Chris Maixner.
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 2.2.5, 2.0.11 or later.
