Wireshark 3.6.5 [Update]


Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible. You could think of a network packet analyzer as a measuring device used to examine what's going on inside a network cable, just like a voltmeter is used by an electrician to examine what's going on inside an electric cable (but at a higher level, of course). In the past, such tools were either very expensive, proprietary, or both. However, with the advent of Wireshark, all that has changed. Wireshark is perhaps one of the best open source packet analyzers available today.

  • Deep inspection of hundreds of protocols, with more being added all the time
  • Live capture and offline analysis
  • Standard three-pane packet browser
  • Multi-platform: Runs on Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and many others
  • Captured network data can be browsed via a GUI, or via the TTY-mode TShark utility
  • The most powerful display filters in the industry
  • Rich VoIP analysis
  • Read/write many different capture file formats
  • Capture files compressed with gzip can be decompressed on the fly
  • Live data can be read from Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, PPP/HDLC, ATM, Bluetooth, USB, Token Ring, Frame Relay, FDDI, and others (depending on your platfrom)
  • Decryption support for many protocols, including IPsec, ISAKMP, Kerberos, SNMPv3, SSL/TLS, WEP, and WPA/WPA2
  • Coloring rules can be applied to the packet list for quick, intuitive analysis
  • Output can be exported to XML, PostScript®, CSV, or plain text

Wireshark 3.6.4 fixes:

  • Build failure with GCC 7.5, Linux Issue 17911.
  • RDP dissected as SSL Issue 17952.
  • IPFIX/cflow dissector asserts when varlen field length is zero Issue 18010.
  • 802.11ax HE PHY "Device Class" dissected incorrectly Issue 18030.
  • DHCPv6 Option 15 User-Class incorrectly parsed in Wireshark Issue 18032.
  • ICMPv6 dissector: PREF64 option parsing only works for prefix length 96 Issue 18033.
  • Switch macOS updater to Sparkle 2 Issue 18035.
  • CQL timestamp dissector displays the wrong timestamp Issue 18038.
  • Unable to dissect 802.11ax Target Wake Time (TWT) packets Issue 18050.
