The package wireshark-qt before version 2.2.2-1 is vulnerable to
multiple issues including arbitrary code execution and denial of
Upgrade to 2.2.2-1.
# pacman -Syu "wireshark-qt>=2.2.2-1"
The problems have been fixed upstream in version 2.2.2.
- CVE-2016-9373 (arbitrary code execution)
In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.7, 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.
- CVE-2016-9374 (denial of service)
In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.7, 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
- CVE-2016-9375 (denial of service)
In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.7, 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.
- CVE-2016-9376 (denial of service)
In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.7, 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
A remote attacker is able to execute arbitrary code or perform a denial
of service attack via malicious network traffic.
