K01837042: Multiple Wireshark (tshark) vulnerabilities

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: Jun 25, 2016
Updated Date: Dec 21, 2017

Security Advisory Description

  * CVE-2015-8711

    epan/dissectors/packet-nbap.c in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x
    before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate conversation data,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
    dereference and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8714

    The dissect_dcom_OBJREF function in epan/dissectors/packet-dcom.c in the
    DCOM dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not initialize a
    certain IPv4 data structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a
    denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8716

    The init_t38_info_conv function in epan/dissectors/packet-t38.c in the T.38
    dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not ensure that a
    conversation exists, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
    service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8717

    The dissect_sdp function in epan/dissectors/packet-sdp.c in the SDP
    dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 does not prevent use of a
    negative media count, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
    service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8718

    Double free vulnerability in epan/dissectors/packet-nlm.c in the NLM
    dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1, when
    the "Match MSG/RES packets for async NLM" option is enabled, allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
    packet.

  * CVE-2015-8720

    The dissect_ber_GeneralizedTime function in epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in
    the BER dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1
    improperly checks an sscanf return value, which allows remote attackers to
    cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8721

    Buffer overflow in the tvb_uncompress function in epan/tvbuff_zlib.c in
    Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
    packet with zlib compression.

  * CVE-2015-8723

    The AirPDcapPacketProcess function in epan/crypt/airpdcap.c in the 802.11
    dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not
    validate the relationship between the total length and the capture length,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based
    buffer overflow and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8725

    The dissect_diameter_base_framed_ipv6_prefix function in epan/dissectors/
    packet-diameter.c in the DIAMETER dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before
    1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the IPv6 prefix length,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based
    buffer overflow and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8729

    The ascend_seek function in wiretap/ascendtext.c in the Ascend file parser
    in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not ensure
    the presence of a '\0' character at the end of a date string, which allows
    remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and
    application crash) via a crafted file.

  * CVE-2015-8730

    epan/dissectors/packet-nbap.c in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x
    before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does not validate the number of items,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid read
    operation and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2015-8733

    The ngsniffer_process_record function in wiretap/ngsniffer.c in the Sniffer
    file parser in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.9 and 2.0.x before 2.0.1 does
    not validate the relationships between record lengths and record header
    lengths, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted file.

  * CVE-2016-2523

    The dnp3_al_process_object function in epan/dissectors/packet-dnp.c in the
    DNP3 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.10 and 2.0.x before 2.0.2
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a
    crafted packet.

  * CVE-2016-4006

    epan/proto.c in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 does
    not limit the protocol-tree depth, which allows remote attackers to cause a
    denial of service (stack memory consumption and application crash) via a
    crafted packet.

  * CVE-2016-4078

    The IEEE 802.11 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x
    before 2.0.3 does not properly restrict element lists, which allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (deep recursion and application
    crash) via a crafted packet, related to epan/dissectors/packet-capwap.c and
    epan/dissectors/packet-ieee80211.c.

  * CVE-2016-4079

    epan/dissectors/packet-pktc.c in the PKTC dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x
    before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 does not verify BER identifiers,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds
    write and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2016-4080

    epan/dissectors/packet-pktc.c in the PKTC dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x
    before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 misparses timestamp fields, which
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read
    and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2016-4081

    epan/dissectors/packet-iax2.c in the IAX2 dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x
    before 1.12.11 and 2.0.x before 2.0.3 uses an incorrect integer data type,
    which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop)
    via a crafted packet.

  * CVE-2016-4085

    Stack-based buffer overflow in epan/dissectors/packet-ncp2222.inc in the
    NCP dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.11 allows remote attackers to
    cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified
    other impact via a long string in a packet.

Impact

If Wireshark is launched manually by a user with Advanced Shell (bash) access,
dissection of specially crafted packets could cause Wireshark to consume
excessive resources. Wireshark is not part of normal BIG-IP operation; only
users who actively run Wireshark are vulnerable.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

To mitigate this vulnerability, avoid using Wireshark (tshark) on the BIG-IP
system. For troubleshooting purposes, the tcpdump utility can be safely used.
