Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-30
(Kiax: Arbitrary code execution)

The iax_net_read function in the iaxclient library fails to properly
handle IAX2 packets with truncated full frames or mini-frames. These
frames are detected in a length check but processed anyway, leading to
buffer overflows.

Impact :

By sending a specially crafted IAX2 packet, an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Kiax.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/kiax-0.8.5_p1'
