CVE-2017-17935 (retired)

Priority
Description
The File_read_line function in epan/wslua/wslua_file.c in Wireshark through
2.2.11 does not properly strip '\n' characters, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer underflow and application
crash) via a crafted packet that triggers the attempted processing of an
empty line.
