Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2019-11-07
Bug(s): #694314
ID: 201911-02

Synopsis

A buffer overflow in pump might allow remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code.


Background

BOOTP and DHCP client for automatic IP configuration.

Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/pump
Vulnerable: <= 0.8.24-r4
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

It was discovered that there was an arbitrary code execution
vulnerability in the pump DHCP/BOOTP client.


Impact

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to connect to a malicious server,
could cause the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running pump DHCP/BOOTP client.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

Gentoo has discontinued support for pump. We recommend that users
unmerge pump:
Code:
# emerge --unmerge "net-misc/pump"
