Title: Firebird: Buffer Overflow (GLSA 201512-11)
Date: December 30, 2015
A buffer overflow in Firebird might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.
Firebird is a multi-platform, open source relational database.
Vulnerable: < 188.8.131.52780.0-r3
Unaffected: >= 184.108.40.206780.0-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures
The vulnerability is caused due to an error when processing requests
from remote clients.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Firebird users should upgrade to the latest version:
NOTE: Firebird package was moved to the testing branch (unstable) of
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
Gentoo. There is currently no stable version of Firebird, and there will
be no further GLSAs for this package.
