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.
