|Affected versions||< 0.11.8|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.11.8|
OpenSC provides a set of libraries and utilities to access smart cards.
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in OpenSC:
The first vulnerabilty allows physically proximate attackers to bypass intended PIN requirements and read private data objects. The second vulnerability allows attackers to read the cleartext form of messages that were intended to be encrypted.
NOTE: Smart cards which were initialised using an affected version of OpenSC need to be modified or re-initialised. See the vendor's advisory for details.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenSC users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/opensc-0.11.8"
