Wireshark 4.0.10 – What’s New?

Bug fixes for the following issues:

  • Error loading plugin with Wireshark 4.0.9 and 3.6.17 on macOS. Issue 19374

Since there are no official 32-bit Windows packages for Wireshark 4.0 and later, it’s essential to use the most recent version of Windows (3.6).

“If you’re running Wireshark on macOS and upgraded to macOS 13 from an earlier version, you might have to open and run the “Uninstall ChmodBPF” package, then open and run “Install ChmodBPF” to reset the ChmodBPF Launch Daemon. Issue 18734”, reads the release notes.

There is no new protocol support, updated protocol support, new and updated capture file support, or new file format decoding support in this new version of Wireshark 4.0.10.

To Find the File Location

Wireshark and TShark search for preference files, plugins, SNMP MIBS, and RADIUS dictionaries in different locations. These locations differ depending on the platform. 

To identify the default locations on your machine, use Help › About Wireshark › Folders or tshark -G folders.
