Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-10-09 11:55:08 UTC
CVE-2009-3575 (
  Buffer overflow in in aria2 0.15.3,
  1.2.0, and other versions allows remote attackers to cause a denial
  of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-10-09 11:55:47 UTC
Can we go stable with aria2-1.5.2?
Comment 2 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-26 22:14:40 UTC
A vulnerability was now found in 1.5.2 as well. Backporting the patch would be fairly simple (as it's only about removing a single line), but I would suggest following upstream and bumping to 1.6.2 and stabilizing that.
Comment 3 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-26 22:18:22 UTC
CVE-2009-3617 (
  Format string vulnerability in the AbstractCommand::onAbort function
  in src/ in aria2 before 1.6.2, when logging is
  enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a
  denial of service (application crash) via format string specifiers in
  a download URI.  NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third
  party information.

1.6.3 is in the tree, all tests pass.

> 1.6.3 is in the tree, all tests pass.

Thank you. I just noticed 1.6.2 has been in the tree since 11 Oct as well. Do you want 1.6.2 or 1.6.3 to go stable now?
Comment 6 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-03 13:50:12 UTC
1.6.3 contains more bugfixes, so go for 1.6.3 if possible
Comment 7 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-03 14:51:46 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 x86"
Comment 8 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-03 19:32:02 UTC
x86 stable
Comment 9 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2009-11-04 11:26:13 UTC
