A bug in Zebedee allows a remote attacker to perform a Denial of Service attack.
|Package||net-misc/zebedee on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.5.3|
|Unaffected versions||revision >= 2.4.1-r1, >= 2.5.3|
Zebedee is an application that establishes an encrypted, compressed tunnel for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems.
"Shiraishi.M" reported that Zebedee crashes when "0" is received as the port number in the protocol option header.
By performing malformed requests a remote attacker could cause Zebedee to crash.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Zebedee users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose net-misc/zebedee
