Wireshark 2.2.1 Network Protocol Analyzer Adds Ascend & K12 Capture File Support

Announced a month ago, on September 7, Wireshark 2.2 was a major release that brought a large number of new features and improvements, such as support for SSL or TLS over TCP for the “Decode As” functionality, and the implementation of the “-d” option for “Decode As” to mimic the TShark functionality, or the ability to disable coloring rules instead of discarding them to provide backward compatibility with the coloring rule changes in Wireshark 2.2. And, today, Wireshark 2.2.1 is here to further improve the stability of the software in an attempt to address a bunch of bugs and security vulnerabilities that have been reported by users since Wireshark 2.2. For starters, the point release patches two important crashes, one for the Bluetooth L2CAP dissector and the other one for the NCP dissector. Then, it fixes 18 reported bugs.
