Title: TigerVNC: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201411-03)
Date: November 05, 2014
A buffer overflow in TigerVNC could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
TigerVNC is a high-performance VNC server/client.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.1
Unaffected: >= 1.3.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Two boundary errors in TigerVNC could lead to a heap-based buffer
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious VNC
server using TigerVNC, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All TigerVNC users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/tigervnc-1.3.1"
