Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-08-23 07:59:45 UTC
From ${URL} :

mspack/lzxd.c in libmspack 0.5alpha, as used in ClamAV 0.99.2, allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer
overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other
impact via a crafted CHM file.

Upstream patch:

@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 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2017-08-24 20:09:11 UTC
libmspack-0.5_alpha-r1 with patch from clamav in repo.

I would say it's ready for stabilization.
I wonder about relation to bug 625634.
Comment 2 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2017-10-19 23:12:39 UTC
libmspack-0.6_alpha in portage. Please stabilize this one instead. Also see bug 625634.
Comment 3 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2018-03-02 00:23:09 UTC
Freeing CVE-2017-6419 alias to create a tracker bug.
Comment 4 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-03-27 02:40:06 UTC
No PoC for ACE/RCE.  Downgraded to B3.  Cleanup will be tracked in bug #625634
