Wireshark, World’s Popular Network Protocol Analyzer, Gets New Stable Release

Coming almost two months after the release of Wireshark 2.2.6, this new maintenance update is here to patch read overflow vulnerabilities in the DOF and DHCP dissectors, infinite loop issues in the Bazaar, SoulSeek, DNS, and DICOM dissectors, as well as a memory exhaustion bug in the openSAFETY dissector. It also addresses a divide by zero security flaw in the BT L2CAP dissector and several crashes in the MSNIP, ROS, RGMP, and IPv6 dissectors. Additionally, it fixes a regression from Wireshark 2.2.5 that would not allow the export of captured DICOM objects and repairs a total of 25 issues reported lately.
