Buffer overflow vulnerability in Wireshark

It may be possible to make Wireshark crash or execute malicious code by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file. The latest version of Wireshark (1.8.13) is not vulnerable to these issues, therefore it is recommended to upgrade to versions 1.10.6, 1.8.13 or later.
