DHCPv6 large loop in Wireshark - CVE-2017-5597

oval:org.cisecurity:def:2726

In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.3 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.9 the DHCPv6 dissector could go into a large loop triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dhcpv6.c by changing a data type to avoid an integer overflow.
