The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-04
(Tor: Several vulnerabilities)
Some integer overflows exist when adding elements to the smartlists.
Non-printable characters received from the network are not properly
sanitised before being logged. There are additional unspecified bugs in
the directory server and in the internal circuits.
The possible buffer overflow may allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code on the server by sending large inputs. The other
vulnerabilities can lead to a Denial of Service, a lack of logged
information, or some information disclosure.
There is no known workaround at this time.
