|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Tor: Information disclosure (GLSA 200506-18)
Date: June 21, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
A flaw in Tor may allow the disclosure of arbitrary memory portions.
Tor is an implementation of second generation Onion Routing, a connection-oriented anonymizing communication service.
Vulnerable: < 0.0.9.10
Unaffected: >= 0.0.9.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
A bug in Tor allows attackers to view arbitrary memory contents from an exit server's process space.
A remote attacker could exploit the memory disclosure to gain sensitive information and possibly even private keys.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Tor users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/tor-0.0.9.10"
