Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-11-25 19:41:40 UTC

An issue was discovered in lldpd before 1.0.17. By crafting a CDP PDU packet with specific CDP_TLV_ADDRESSES TLVs, a malicious actor can remotely force the lldpd daemon to perform an out-of-bounds read on heap memory. This occurs in cdp_decode in daemon/protocols/cdp.c.

Please stabilize 1.0.17.

It seems 1.0.16 is not stable, cleaning the old version would be enough then, I think
