Title: mbed TLS: Multiple vulnerabilites (GLSA 201804-19)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in mbed TLS, the worst of
which could allow remote attackers to execute 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.
Vulnerable: < 2.7.2
Unaffected: >= 2.7.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in mbed TLS. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker, through multiple vectors, could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of
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-2.7.2"
