|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: MPFR: Denial of Service (GLSA 200903-13)
Date: March 09, 2009
Multiple buffer overflows in MPFR might lead to a Denial of Service.
MPFR is a library for multiple-precision floating-point computations
with exact rounding.
Vulnerable: < 2.4.1
Unaffected: >= 2.4.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple buffer overflows have been reported in the mpfr_snprintf() and
A remote user could exploit the vulnerability to cause a Denial of
Service in an application using MPFR via unknown vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MPRF users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/mpfr-2.4.1"
