Details

New Wireshark packages that fix various security vulnerabilities are now
available. Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark's LLT, IEEE 802.11,
http, and tcp protocol dissectors. It was possible for Wireshark to crash
or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network.
(CVE-2007-0456, CVE-2007-0457, CVE-2007-0458, CVE-2007-0459)

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages containing
Wireshark version 0.99.5, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
