GLSA-200704-17 : 3proxy: Buffer overflow
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 25105
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-17 (3proxy: Buffer overflow)
The 3proxy development team reported a buffer overflow in the logurl() function when processing overly long requests.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted transparent request to the proxy, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with privileges of the user running 3proxy.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll 3proxy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-proxy/3proxy-0.5.3h'
