Hi All ,

While through list vulnerability  ,  It is mentioned that libpcap suffers the from attack mentioned in below link .


wiretap/libpcap.c in the libpcap file parser in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.4 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted packet-trace file that includes a large packet.

Is libpcap version 1.1.1 available on tcpdump.org  is vulnerable to this attack ?  if yes which version has the fix for the same.
