Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201409-07
(c-icap: Denial of Service)

c-icap contains a flaw in the parse_request() function of request.c that
may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when the
buffer fails to contain a ‘ ‘ or ‘?’ symbol, which will cause the
end pointer to increase and surpass allocated memory. With a specially
crafted request (e.g. via the OPTIONS method), a remote attacker can
cause a loss of availability for the program.

Impact :

A remote attacker may cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-proxy/c-icap-0.2.6'

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
