Denial of Service Vulnerability in Wireshark - CVE-2017-6014

oval:org.cisecurity:def:2714

In Wireshark 2.2.4 and earlier a crafted or malformed STANAG 4607 capture file will cause an infinite loop and memory exhaustion. If the packet size field in a packet header is null the offset to read from will not advance causing continuous attempts to read the same zero length packet. This will quickly exhaust all system memory.
