The libssh vulnerability does not affect the majority of products since it only affects servers and not client applications. Wireshark uses libssh as a client for some external capture (extcap) utilities: sshdump and ciscodump.

In a default configuration, these applications won't even try to connect to any SSH server so even if there is a hypothetical client vulnerability, it will remain unaffected unless you explicitly configure the interface.
