Title: grep: Denial of Service (GLSA 201502-14)
Date: February 25, 2015
A vulnerability in grep could result in Denial of Service.
grep is the GNU regular expression matcher.
Vulnerable: < 2.21-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.21-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A heap buffer overrun has been fixed in the bmexec_trans function in
A local user can cause Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All grep users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/grep-2.21-r1"
