GLSA-201201-12 : Tor: Multiple vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201201-12
(Tor: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tor:
When configured as client or bridge, Tor uses the same TLS
certificate chain for all outgoing connections (CVE-2011-2768).
When configured as a bridge, Tor relays can distinguish incoming
bridge connections from client connections (CVE-2011-2769).
An error in or/buffers.c could result in a heap-based buffer overflow

Impact :

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code or cause a
Denial of Service. Furthermore, a remote relay the user is directly
connected to may be able to disclose anonymous information about that
user or enumerate bridges in the user's connection.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/tor-'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.6
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.6
Public Exploit Available : false
