Is Wireshark preinstalled on Ubuntu 14.04

After having a look around my filesystem I noticed wireshark is installed. Is Wireshark a standard package in Ubuntu. I don’t recall installing it.

It appears that the package libwireshark3 was inadvertently left on the current Ubuntu 14.04 image. This is safe to uninstall. We are rebuilding fresh images, and will publish them shortly.
