|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: HAVP: Denial of Service (GLSA 200809-11)
Date: September 21, 2008
A Denial of Service vulnerability has been reported in HAVP.
HAVP is a HTTP AntiVirus Proxy.
Vulnerable: < 0.89
Unaffected: >= 0.89
Architectures: All supported architectures
Peter Warasin reported an infinite loop in sockethandler.cpp when
connecting to a non-responsive HTTP server.
A remote attacker could send requests to unavailable servers, resulting
in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All HAVP users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/havp-0.89"
