Title: Pavuk: Digest authentication helper buffer overflow (GLSA 200407-19)
Date: July 26, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Pavuk contains a bug that can allow an attacker to run arbitrary code.
Pavuk is web spider and website mirroring tool.
Vulnerable: <= 0.9.28-r2
Unaffected: >= 0.9.28-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures
Pavuk contains several buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the code handling digest authentication.
An attacker could cause a buffer overflow, leading to arbitrary code execution with the rights of the user running Pavuk.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version of Pavuk.
All Pavuk users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=net-misc/pavuk-0.9.28-r3"
# emerge ">=net-misc/pavuk-0.9.28-r3"
