A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in Analog.
|Package||app-admin/analog on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 6.0-r2|
|Unaffected versions||>= 6.0-r2|
Analog is a a webserver log analyzer.
Diego E. Petteno reported that the Analog package in Gentoo is built with its own copy of bzip2, making it vulnerable to CVE-2008-1372 (GLSA 200804-02).
A local attacker could place specially crafted log files into a log directory being analyzed by analog, e.g. /var/log/apache, resulting in a crash when being processed by the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Analog users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/analog-6.0-r2"
NOTE: Analog is now linked against the system bzip2 library.
