Title: Analog: Denial of Service (GLSA 200903-40)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: March 29, 2009
Bug(s): #249140
ID: 200903-40

Synopsis


A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in Analog.


Background


Analog is a a webserver log analyzer.


Affected Packages

Package: app-admin/analog
Vulnerable: < 6.0-r2
Unaffected: >= 6.0-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Diego E. Petteno reported that the Analog package in Gentoo is built
with its own copy of bzip2, making it vulnerable to CVE-2008-1372 (GLSA
200804-02).


Impact


A local attacker could place specially crafted log files into a log
directory being analyzed by analog, e.g. /var/log/apache, resulting in
a crash when being processed by the application.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Analog users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/analog-6.0-r2"

NOTE: Analog is now linked against the system bzip2 library.
