A vulnerability in PCSC-Lite could result in execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
|Package||sys-apps/pcsc-lite on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.6.6|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.6.6|
PCSC-Lite is a PC/SC Architecture smartcard middleware library.
PCSC-Lite contains a stack-based buffer overflow in the ATRDecodeAtr function in the Answer-to-Reset Handler (atrhandler.c).
A physically proximate attacker could execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All PCSC-Lite users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/pcsc-lite-1.6.6"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since January 10, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
