A Denial of Service vulnerability has been reported in HAVP.
|Package||net-proxy/havp on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.89|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.89|
HAVP is a HTTP AntiVirus Proxy.
Peter Warasin reported an infinite loop in sockethandler.cpp when connecting to a non-responsive HTTP server.
A remote attacker could send requests to unavailable servers, resulting in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All HAVP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/havp-0.89"
