WBXML dissector infinite loop - CVE-2017-7702

oval:org.cisecurity:def:2867

In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.7 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.13 the WBXML dissector could go into an infinite loop triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wbxml.c by adding length validation.
