Background

Unaffected: >= 0.2.1.30
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the Tor process or create a Denial of Service.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
