GLSA-201406-07 : Echoping: Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74372
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201406-07 (Echoping: Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities)
A boundary error exists within the “TLS_readline()” function, which can be exploited to overflow a global buffer by sending an overly long encrypted HTTP reply to Echoping. Also, a similar boundary error exists within the “SSL_readline()” function, which can be exploited in the same manner.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted HTTP reply, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Echoping users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-analyzer/echoping-6.0.2_p434'
