OpenAFS is an client-server program suite for federated file sharing and replicated content distribution.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenAFS. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
An attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the AFS server, cause a Denial of Service condition, or gain access to sensitive information. Additionally, an attacker could compromise a cell’s private key, allowing them to impersonate any user in the cell.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenAFS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/openafs-1.6.5"
