Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-06-09 03:44:39 UTC
CVE-2023-2961 (

A segmentation fault flaw was found in the Advancecomp package. This may lead to decreased availability.

The sole reference is quite useless, no reference to upstream report or fixed version.

Do I understand correctly that what we've basically got is a report that there is some bug somewhere but no clue what it's about and when it's going to be fixed?
Comment 2 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev Security 2023-10-26 15:33:13 UTC
According to the redhat bug this is fixed in advancecomp 2.5, and its release notes mention: "* Fix segmentation fault on invalid MNG size".
