The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201202-02 (Quagga: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Quagga. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
Impact :

A BGP peer could send a Route-Refresh message with specially crafted ORF record, which can cause Quagga's bgpd to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Quagga's bgpd; a BGP update AS path request with unknown AS type, or malformed AS-Pathlimit or Extended-Community attributes could lead to Denial of Service (daemon crash), an error in bgpd when handling AS_PATH attributes within UPDATE messages can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow resulting in a crash of the daemon and disruption of IPv4 routing, two errors in ospf6d and ospfd can each be exploited to crash the daemon and disrupt IP routing.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All Quagga users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/quagga-0.99.20'
