|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Pavuk: Multiple buffer overflows (GLSA 200411-19)
Date: November 10, 2004
Pavuk contains multiple buffer overflows that can allow a remote attacker to run arbitrary code.
Pavuk is web spider and website mirroring tool.
Vulnerable: < 0.9.31
Unaffected: >= 0.9.31
Architectures: All supported architectures
Pavuk contains several buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the code handling digest authentication and HTTP header processing. This issue is similar to GLSA 200407-19, but contains more vulnerabilities.
A remote attacker could cause a buffer overflow, leading to arbitrary code execution with the rights of the user running Pavuk.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Pavuk users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/pavuk-0.9.31"
