Title: Tor: Denial of Service (GLSA 201507-02)
Date: July 06, 2015
Two vulnerabilities have been found in Tor, the worst of which can
allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service condition.
Tor is an implementation of second generation Onion Routing, a
connection-oriented anonymizing communication service.
Vulnerable: < 0.2.6.7
Unaffected: >= 0.2.6.7
Architectures: All supported architectures
Tor does not handle data correctly when specifically crafted data is
sent, and also fails to properly verify a descriptor provided by a hidden
A remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service condition in both a
Tor client or a Tor server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/tor-0.2.6.7"
