Wireshark v1.10.8 - The world’s foremost network protocol analyzer

Wireshark is the world’s foremost network protocol analyzer. It lets you capture and interactively browse the traffic running on a computer network. It is the de facto (and often de jure) standard across many industries and educational institutions.

Wireshark development thrives thanks to the contributions of networking experts across the globe. It is the continuation of a project that started in 1998.


Wireshark has a rich feature set which includes the following:
  • 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: tcpdump (libpcap), Pcap NG, Catapult DCT2000, Cisco Secure IDS iplog, Microsoft Network Monitor, Network General Sniffer® (compressed and uncompressed), Sniffer® Pro, and NetXray®, Network Instruments Observer, NetScreen snoop, Novell LANalyzer, RADCOM WAN/LAN Analyzer, Shomiti/Finisar Surveyor, Tektronix K12xx, Visual Networks Visual UpTime, WildPackets EtherPeek/TokenPeek/AiroPeek, and many others
  • 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 platform)
  • 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 

The following vulnerabilities have been fixed.
The following bugs have been fixed:
  • VoIP flow graph crash upon opening. (Bug 9179)
  • Tshark with "-F pcap" still generates a pcapng file. (Bug 9991)
  • IPv6 Next Header 0x3d recognized as SHIM6. (Bug 9995)
  • Failed to export pdml on large pcap. (Bug 10081)
  • TCAP: set a fence on info column after calling sub dissector (Bug 10091)
  • Dissector bug in JSON protocol. (Bug 10115)
  • GSM RLC MAC: do not skip too many lines of the CSN_DESCR when the field is missing (Bug 10120)
  • Wireshark PEEKREMOTE incorrectly decoding QoS data packets from Cisco Sniffer APs. (Bug 10139)
  • IEEE 802.11: fix dissection of HT Capabilities (Bug 10166
