A vulnerability in GNUstep Base library could lead to Denial of Service.
|Package||gnustep-base/gnustep-base on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.24.6-r1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.24.6-r1|
GNUstep Base library is a free software package implementing the API of the OpenStep Foundation Kit (tm), including later additions.
GNUstep Base library does not properly handle the file descriptor for logging, when run as a daemon.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNUstep Base library users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=gnustep-base/gnustep-base-1.24.6-r1"
