Description

From reporter:

## Input
Nearly the same as bug 2 but the type is an other, such that the DecodeEthernet(..) is executed e second time.
...
case ETHERNET_TYPE_DCE:
if (unlikely(len < ETHERNET_DCE_HEADER_LEN)) {
ENGINE_SET_INVALID_EVENT(p, DCE_PKT_TOO_SMALL);
} else {
DecodeEthernet(tv, dtv, p, pkt + ETHERNET_DCE_HEADER_LEN,
len - ETHERNET_DCE_HEADER_LEN, pq);
}
break ;
...
## Reason
If the package is exactly 28 long, in the first iteration you subtract 14 bytes. Than we have a packet length
of 14. At this point the case distinction says it is a valid packet. After that you cast the packet, but
This packet has not a type and the program will crash at the type case distinction.

If you proof the ethernet packets of a valid minimal max length, it would counter this types of bugs
