Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Firebird: Buffer Overflow (GLSA 201512-11)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 30, 2015
Bug(s): #460780
ID: 201512-11


A buffer overflow in Firebird might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.


Firebird is a multi-platform, open source relational database.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/firebird
Vulnerable: <
Unaffected: >=
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:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
NOTE: Firebird package was moved to the testing branch (unstable) of
Gentoo. There is currently no stable version of Firebird, and there will
be no further GLSAs for this package.
