The DTLS dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.14 and 1.8.x before
1.8.6 does not validate the fragment offset before invoking the
reassembly state machine, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a large offset value that
triggers write access to an invalid memory location.
