|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: stunnel: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201202-08)
Date: February 29, 2012
Updated: July 30, 2012
A vulnerability was found in stunnel, allowing remote attackers to
cause a Denial of Service and potentially arbitrary code execution.
The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper
between a client and a local or remote server.
Vulnerable: < 4.44
Unaffected: >= 4.44
Unaffected: < 4
Architectures: All supported architectures
An unspecified heap vulnerability was discovered in stunnel.
The vulnerability may possibly be leveraged to perform remote code
execution or a Denial of Service attack.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All stunnel 4.x users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/stunnel-4.44"
