GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200301-9
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : fnord
SUMMARY : buffer overrun
DATE : 2003-01-17 10:01 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

- From http://www.fefe.de/fnord/ :

"fnord 1.6 contained a buffer overrun in the CGI code. However, since
the function does not return, this does not appear to be exploitable."

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/fnord upgrade to fnord-1.7 as follows:

emerge sync
emerge -u fnord
emerge clean
