SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201701-11 (musl: Integer overflow)
A vulnerability was discovered in musl’s tre_tnfa_run_parallel function buffer overflow logic, due to the incorrect use of integer types and missing overflow checks.
An attacker, who controls the regular expression and/or string being searched, could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
