New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202009-12 (ZeroMQ: Denial of service)
It was discovered that ZeroMQ does not properly handle connecting peers before a handshake is completed.
An unauthenticated remote attacker able to connect to a ZeroMQ endpoint, even with CURVE encryption/authentication enabled, can cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll ZeroMQ users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-libs/zeromq-4.3.3'
