|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Ventrilo: Denial of Service (GLSA 200904-13)
Date: April 14, 2009
A vulnerability has been discovered in Ventrilo, allowing for a Denial of Service.
Ventrilo is a Voice over IP group communication server.
Vulnerable: < 3.0.3
Unaffected: >= 3.0.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
Luigi Auriemma reported a NULL pointer dereference in Ventrilo when processing packets with an invalid version number followed by another packet.
A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets to the server, resulting in a crash.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Ventrilo users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-3.0.3"
