GLSA-201706-25 : Graphite: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 101020
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201706-25 (Graphite: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
An out-of-bounds write has been found in the Graphite 2 library.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted document using Graphite or an application linked against Graphite library, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Graphite users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/graphite2-1.3.8-r1'
