Title: libgadu: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201508-02)
Date: August 15, 2015
Bug(s): #490238, #505558, #510714
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libgadu, the worst of
which may result in execution of arbitrary code.
libgadu is a library that implements the client side of the Gadu-Gadu
Vulnerable: < 1.12.0
Unaffected: >= 1.12.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
libgadu contains multiple vulnerabilities:
- X.509 certificates are not properly validated (CVE-2013-4488)
- A integer overflow error could lead to a buffer overflow
- Malformed responses from a Gadu-Gadu file relay server are not
properly handled (CVE-2014-3775)
A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or spoof
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libgadu users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libgadu-1.12.0"
