SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202003-47 (Exim: Heap-based buffer overflow)
It was discovered that Exim incorrectly handled certain string operations.
A remote attacker, able to connect to a vulnerable Exim instance, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Exim users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=mail-mta/exim-4.92.3'
