Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202004-10
Date : 2020-04-09
CVE-ID : CVE-2020-11647
Package : wireshark-cli
Type : arbitrary code execution
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1129
The package wireshark-cli before version 3.2.3-1 is vulnerable to
arbitrary code execution.
Upgrade to 3.2.3-1.
# pacman -Syu "wireshark-cli>=3.2.3-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 3.2.3.
A stack overflow has been found in the fAbstractSyntaxNType function of
the BACApp dissector of Wireshark versions prior to 3.2.3, which could
be triggered by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by
convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
A remote attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code or crash
wireshark via a crafted network packet or a capture file.
