New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201507-02 (Tor: Denial of Service)
Tor does not handle data correctly when specifically crafted data is sent, and also fails to properly verify a descriptor provided by a hidden service directory.
A remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service condition in both a Tor client or a Tor server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/tor-0.2.6.7'
