Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: mbed TLS: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201706-18)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-06-20
Bug(s): #562608, #571102, #618824
ID: 201706-18


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in mbed TLS, the worst of
which could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.


mbed TLS (previously PolarSSL) is an “easy to understand, use,
integrate and expand” implementation of the TLS and SSL protocols and
the respective cryptographic algorithms and support code required.

Affected Packages

Package: net-libs/mbedtls
Vulnerable: < 2.4.2
Unaffected: >= 2.4.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in mbed TLS. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


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 mbed TLS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/mbedtls-2.4.2"
