Wireshark MAC-LTE buffer overflow
|wireshark-maclte-bo (64624)||High Risk|
Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the MAC-LTE dissector. By sending a specially-crafted packet, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
