Wireshark issue 17811.
The Kafka protocol dissector could go into an infinite loop. Discovered by Sharon Brizinov.
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 3.6.1, 3.4.12 or later.
