Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: aria2: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201001-06)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: January 13, 2010
Bug(s): #288291
ID: 201001-06

Synopsis


A buffer overflow and a format string vulnerability in aria2 allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code.


Background


aria2 is a download utility with resuming and segmented downloading
with HTTP/HTTPS/FTP/BitTorrent support.


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/aria2
Vulnerable: < 1.6.3
Unaffected: >= 1.6.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa reported a buffer overflow in
DHTRoutingTableDeserializer.cc (CVE-2009-3575) and a format string
vulnerability in the AbstractCommand::onAbort() function in
src/AbstractCommand.cc (CVE-2009-3617).


Impact


A remote, unauthenticated attacker could possibly execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application or cause a
Denial of Service (application crash).


Workaround


Do not use DHT (CVE-2009-3575) and disable logging (CVE-2009-3617).


Resolution


All aria2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/aria2-1.6.3"
