|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: libproxy: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201404-02)
Date: April 07, 2014
A buffer overflow in libproxy might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.
libproxy is a library for automatic proxy configuration management.
Vulnerable: < 0.4.10
Unaffected: >= 0.4.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
A boundary error when processing the proxy.pac file could cause a
stack-based buffer overflow.
A man-in-the-middle attacker could provide a specially crafted proxy.pac
file on a remote server, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libproxy users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libproxy-0.4.10"
