Title: SWI-Prolog : Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201312-05)
Date: December 06, 2013
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in SWI-Prolog which allow
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
SWI-Prolog is a free, small, and standard compliant Prolog compiler.
Vulnerable: < 6.2.5
Unaffected: >= 6.2.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in SWI-Prolog:
* An error in the canoniseFileName() function could cause a stack-based
buffer overflow (CVE-2012-6089).
* An error in the expand() function could cause a stack-based buffer
A context-dependent attack can create files with specially crafted
names, causing arbitrary code execution or a denial of service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SWI-Prolog users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/swi-prolog-6.2.5"
