Tim Wojtulewicz of Corelight reports:

File extraction limits were not correctly enforced for files containing large amounts of missing bytes.

Sessions are sometimes not cleaned up completely within Zeek during shutdown, potentially causing a crash when using the -B dpd flag for debug logging.

A specially-crafted HTTP packet can cause Zeek's filename extraction code to take a long time to process the data.

A specially-crafted series of FTP packets made up of a CWD request followed by a large amount of ERPT requests may cause Zeek to spend a long time logging the commands.

A specially-crafted VLAN packet can cause Zeek to overflow memory and potentially crash.
