Wireshark 1.0.4 Released

A new version of Wireshark (Ethereal) has been released to address multiple security issues.


It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a series of malformed packets onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.


Upgrade to Wireshark 1.0.4 or later. Due to the nature of the bugs, there is no workaround for previous versions."
