3. Description:

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Wireshark was
previously known as Ethereal.

Several flaws were found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed packet
off a network or opened a malicious dump file, it could crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2011-1590,
CVE-2011-4102, CVE-2012-1595)

Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could
crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or
opened a malicious dump file. (CVE-2011-1143, CVE-2011-1957, CVE-2011-1958,
CVE-2011-1959, CVE-2011-2174, CVE-2011-2175, CVE-2011-2597, CVE-2011-2698,
