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.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202009-17 (gpsd: Arbitrary code execution)
A stack-based buffer overflow was discovered in gpsd on port 2947/TCP or crafted JSON inputs.
A remote attacker 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 gpsd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sci-geosciences/gpsd-3.18'
