GLSA-201405-16 : Mono: Denial of Service
High Nessus Plugin ID 74098
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201405-16 (Mono: Denial of Service)
Mono does not properly randomize hash functions for form posts to protect against hash collision attacks.
A remote attacker could send specially crafted parameters, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Mono users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-lang/mono-2.10.9-r2'
