Description Davide Pesavento gentoo-dev 2008-06-15 10:48:51 UTC
Just having 3.1.1 in portage should be enough.

The changelog mentions:
"Fixed a buffer overflow error which could have allowed a denial of service under unusual server configurations."
I don't know if this could be seen as a security bug...
Comment 1 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-15 15:05:44 UTC
Server DoS is security relevant I think.
Comment 2 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-15 15:23:26 UTC
Eh, assign...
Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2008-06-16 15:39:28 UTC
Looks like an old VMWare CVE-2007-0062.  Some more notes in:

Comment 4 Tony Vroon gentoo-dev 2008-06-27 10:12:46 UTC
Arches please test and mark stable 3.1.1 as it resolves a DoS through buffer overflow (alledgedly can only be triggered under "unusual server configurations").
