Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-07-19 13:26:00 UTC
From ${URL} :

A buffer overflow can cause an open unsecured server to crash after 2GB (greater than 2147483711 bytes to trigger the software bug)) XML message is received. Fortunately, the overflowing data after 2GB 
is cleaned up in the buffer which means that the chances of exploiting this flaw (by injecting code) is significantly reduced in gSOAP versions affected.


@maintainer(s): since the fixed package is already in the tree, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
