Default Wireshark updates close security holes

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1254039.html

Quote:
The Wireshark development team has announced the release of versions 1.2.17 and 1.4.7 of its open source, cross-platform network protocol analyser.

According to the developers, these maintenance and security updates address multiple vulnerabilities that could, for example, cause the application to crash "by injecting a series of malformed packets onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file".

The other BSDs should follow the example of OpenBSD and remove Wireshark from the ports.
If people have no guts to run tcpdump they should not be running BSDs on the first place.
