Wireshark Release 1.2.1

One of our readers, Tommy,  highlighted that the developers of Wireshark have released a bug fix release bringing the protocol analyser to version 1.2.1.

The release notes highlight that a number of the protocol dissectors have been fixed to address some issues:

  • The IPMI dissector could overrun a buffer - affected: 1.2.0
  • The AFS dissector could crash - affected: 0.9.2 to 1.2.0
  • The Infiniband dissector could crash on some platforms - affected: 1.0.6 to 1.2.0
  • The Bluetooth L2CAP dissector could crash - affected: 1.2.0
  • The RADIUS dissector could crash - affected: 1.2.0
  • The MIOP dissector could crash - affected: 1.2.0
  • The sFlow dissector could use excessive CPU and memory - affected: 1.2.0

Given that some of these issues have been around since pre 1.0, could be a good time to update your installed version.
