    Description:


    Wireshark was updated to version 2.0.12, which brings several new
    features, enhancements and bug fixes.

    These security issues were fixed:

    - CVE-2017-7700: In Wireshark the NetScaler file parser could go into an
    infinite loop, triggered by a malformed capture file. This was addressed
    in wiretap/netscaler.c by ensuring a nonzero record size (bsc#1033936).
    - CVE-2017-7701: In Wireshark the BGP dissector could go into an infinite
    loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-bgp.c by using a different
    integer data type (bsc#1033937).
    - CVE-2017-7702: In Wireshark the WBXML dissector could go into an
    infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture
    file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wbxml.c by adding
    length validation (bsc#1033938).
    - CVE-2017-7703: In Wireshark the IMAP dissector could crash, triggered by
    packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in
    epan/dissectors/packet-imap.c by calculating a line's end correctly
    (bsc#1033939).
    - CVE-2017-7704: In Wireshark the DOF dissector could go into an infinite
    loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dof.c by using a different
    integer data type and adjusting a return value (bsc#1033940).
    - CVE-2017-7705: In Wireshark the RPC over RDMA dissector could go into an
    infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture
    file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-rpcrdma.c by
    correctly checking for going beyond the maximum offset (bsc#1033941).
    - CVE-2017-7745: In Wireshark the SIGCOMP dissector could go into an
    infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture
    file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-sigcomp.c by
    correcting a memory-size check (bsc#1033942).
    - CVE-2017-7746: In Wireshark the SLSK dissector could go into an infinite
    loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-slsk.c by adding checks for the
    remaining length (bsc#1033943).
    - CVE-2017-7747: In Wireshark the PacketBB dissector could crash,
    triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was
    addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-packetbb.c by restricting additions
    to the protocol tree (bsc#1033944).
    - CVE-2017-7748: In Wireshark the WSP dissector could go into an infinite
    loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wsp.c by adding a length check
    (bsc#1033945).
    - CVE-2016-7179: Stack-based buffer overflow in
    epan/dissectors/packet-catapult-dct2000.c in the Catapult DCT2000
    dissector in Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
    service (application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998963).
    - CVE-2016-9376: In Wireshark the OpenFlow dissector could crash with
    memory exhaustion, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-openflow_v5.c by ensuring that
    certain length values were sufficiently large (bsc#1010735).
    - CVE-2016-9375: In Wireshark the DTN dissector could go into an infinite
    loop, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed
    in epan/dissectors/packet-dtn.c by checking whether SDNV evaluation was
    successful (bsc#1010740).
    - CVE-2016-9374: In Wireshark the AllJoyn dissector could crash with a
    buffer over-read, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-alljoyn.c by ensuring that a
    length variable properly tracked the state of a signature variable
    (bsc#1010752).
    - CVE-2016-9373: In Wireshark the DCERPC dissector could crash with a
    use-after-free, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was
    addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dcerpc-nt.c and
    epan/dissectors/packet-dcerpc-spoolss.c by using the wmem file scope for
    private strings (bsc#1010754).
    - CVE-2016-7175: epan/dissectors/packet-qnet6.c in the QNX6 QNET dissector
    in Wireshark mishandled MAC address data, which allowed remote attackers
    to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash)
    via a crafted packet (bsc#998761).
    - CVE-2016-7176: epan/dissectors/packet-h225.c in the H.225 dissector in
    Wireshark called snprintf with one of its input buffers as the output
    buffer, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (copy overlap and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998762).
    - CVE-2016-7177: epan/dissectors/packet-catapult-dct2000.c in the Catapult
    DCT2000 dissector in Wireshark did not restrict the number of channels,
    which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer
    over-read and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998763).
    - CVE-2016-7180: epan/dissectors/packet-ipmi-trace.c in the IPMI trace
    dissector in Wireshark did not properly consider whether a string is
    constant, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (use-after-free and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998800).
    - CVE-2016-7178: epan/dissectors/packet-umts_fp.c in the UMTS FP dissector
    in Wireshark did not ensure that memory is allocated for certain data
    structures, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (invalid write access and application crash) via a crafted packet
    (bsc#998964).
    - CVE-2017-6014: In Wireshark a crafted or malformed STANAG 4607 capture
    file will cause an infinite loop and memory exhaustion. If the packet
    size field in a packet header is null, the offset to read from will not
    advance, causing continuous attempts to read the same zero length
    packet. This will quickly exhaust all system memory (bsc#1025913).
    - CVE-2017-5596: In Wireshark the ASTERIX dissector could go into an
    infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture
    file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-asterix.c by changing
    a data type to avoid an integer overflow (bsc#1021739).
    - CVE-2017-5597: In Wireshark the DHCPv6 dissector could go into a large
    loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This
    was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dhcpv6.c by changing a data type
    to avoid an integer overflow (bsc#1021739).
