|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: INN: Man-in-the-middle attack (GLSA 201401-24)
Date: January 21, 2014
A vulnerability in INN's STARTTLS implementation could allow a
remote attacker to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack.
INN is a news server which can interface with Usenet.
Vulnerable: < 2.5.3
Unaffected: >= 2.5.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
INN’s I/O buffering is not correctly restricted.
A remote attacker could inject commands into encrypted NNTP sessions.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All INN users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-nntp/inn-2.5.3"
