Wireshark Vulnerability
Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) announced yesterday that there is a vulnerability which could cause it to crash, use up all available memory, or potentially execute arbitrary code.  It is highly recommended that we upgrade to version 0.99.2.  I would assume that those using the older Ethereal versions should move over to the new Wireshark branded versions as well.
