Re: [Wireshark-dev] [ANNOUNCE] WinPcap 4.0.2 has been released

I can tell you from the very beginning that this release doesn't address any 
specific Vista issue. Apart from a minor change in the the user level code, 
all the fixes are in the driver, and a bug there causes a BSOD.

I'd like to understand what's going on with Vista+nmap and hopefully address 
it in the next WinPcap 4.1 beta, so any help from the nmap developers is 
appreciated :-)

Have a nice day
GV

Folks might want to see if this helps with any of the strange Vista 
issues.

As of today, WinPcap 4.0.2 is available in the download section of the
WinPcap website, http://www.winpcap.org/install/ .

This maintenance release addresses a security vulnerability reported
by the iDefense Labs in a soon-to-be-released advisory.
Full details can be found in the change log attached at the end of
this message.

Changelog from WinPcap 4.0.1
============================

- Disabled support for monitor mode (also called TME, Table Management
 Extensions) in the driver. This module suffers from several security
 vulnerabilities that could result in BSODs or privilege escalation
 attacks. This fix addresses a security vulnerability reported by the
 iDefense Labs.

- Bug fixing:
 * Added a missing NULL pointer check in pcap_open()
 * Fixed a misplaced #ifdef WIN32 directive in pcap_open().
 * Fixed a bug in the send routine of the driver that could cause a
   crash under low resources conditions.
 * Fixed a bug in the installer causing a mis-detection of a previous
   WinPcap installation
 * Minor cleanup of some #define directives in the driver (to disable
   the TME extensions).
