Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-04-08 09:39:03 UTC
From ${URL} :

Randell Jesup and the Firefox team discovered that srtp, Cisco's
reference implementation of the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol
(SRTP), does not properly handle RTP header CSRC count and extension
header length. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to crash
an application linked against libsrtp, resulting in a denial of service.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2016-11-21 17:06:14 UTC
@ Maintainer(s): Upstream has released v1.5.3 which contains the fixes. However I recommend to bump the package to v1.5.4 which includes further improvements.
