A vulnerability in libsoup might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
|Package||net-libs/libsoup on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.56.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.56.1|
libsoup is an HTTP client/server library for GNOME.
A stack based buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in libsoup.
A remote attacker, by using specially crafted HTTP requests, could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libsoup users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libsoup-2.56.1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
