Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Wireshark. The first is a vulnerability in the SMTP dissector that could cause it to consume excessive CPU and memory via a long SMTP request . The second is an issue with the WLCCP dissector that could cause it to go into an infinite loop. This update also provides a patch to fix a potential freeze during capture interface selection. This update provides Wireshark 1.0.5, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
