A buffer overflow vulnerability in MPFR could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.
|Package||dev-libs/mpfr on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 3.1.3_p4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 3.1.3_p4|
MPFR is a library for multiple-precision floating-point computations with exact rounding.
MPFR fails to adequately check user-supplied input, which could lead to a buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MPFR users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/mpfr-3.1.3_p4"
