SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201111-12 (abcm2ps: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in abcm2ps:
Boundary errors in the PUT0 and PUT1 macros, the trim_title() function, or a long '-O' command line option can lead to a buffer overflow (CVE-2010-3441).
A vulnerability in the getarena() function in abc2ps.c can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in abcm2ps (CVE-2010-4743).
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities (CVE-2010-4744).
A remote attacker could entice a user to load a specially crafted ABC file or use a long -O option on the command line, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/abcm2ps-5.9.13' NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since August 27, 2010. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
