Wireshark 3.0.5 Released with the fix for Several Vulnerabilities

Wireshark 3.0.5 has been released with the new Qt version and fix for other vulnerabilities. The Qt is the library used in Wireshark to build the UI.

The Wireshark is the famous protocol analyzer tool used for protocol analysis, troubleshooting, protocol development, and education.

It is used by network administrators to troubleshoot network and by the security analyst to examine the packets. It is a widely used tool in organizations.

Wireshark 3.0.5

With the release the windows installers ships with Qt 5.12.5, previously it was Qt 5.12.4. Before upgrading to the new version, Wireshark team recommends to manually uninstall Npcap 0.994 or 0.995 if it is installed.

If the Npcap was not installed, it may results in a possible crash while upgrading. More details about Npcap bugs can be found here and here.

Wireshark also provided steps to manually uninstall Npcap

  1. Open a command or PowerShell prompt as Administrator and run sc.exe config npcap start=disabled.
  2. Run sc.exe config npf start=disabled. This will fail if WinPcap compatibility mode isn’t enabled, but is otherwise harmless.
  3. Reboot (optional).
  4. Open “Programs and Features” in the Control Panel or “Apps & features” in Settings and uninstall Npcap.
  5. Open “Device Manager” (devmgmt.msc) in the Control Panel and expand the “Network adapters” section. Uninstall each “Npcap Loopback Adapter” that you find.

  • Qt interface crashes on a profile with packet list only. Bug 16048.
  • Wireshark 3.0.4 does not start on macOS 10.13 after an upgrade from 3.0.3. Bug 16050.
  • NET-SNMP EngineID Length handling Warning. Bug 16051.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
