Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')
In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.5 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.11, the SLSK dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-slsk.c by adding checks for the remaining length.
CWE-835 - Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition
Loops with multiple exits and flags detract from the quality of an application. They tend to make control structures difficult to understand, and introduce the risk of non-termination and other structural problems. The vulnerability “loop with unreachable exit condition” enables attackers to exploit this flaw, leading to denial of service.
