Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GNU Libtasn1, the worst of which may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
|dev-libs/libtasn1 on all architectures
A library that provides Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1, as specified by the X.680 ITU-T recommendation) parsing and structures management, and Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER, as per X.690) encoding and decoding functions.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNU Libtasn1. Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or have other unspecified impacts.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNU Libtasn1 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libtasn1-4.12-r1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
