Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Go. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could cause arbitrary code execution by passing specially crafted Go packages the ‘go get -u’ command.
The remote attacker could also craft pathological inputs causing a CPU based Denial of Service condition via the crypto/x509 package.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Go users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/go-1.10.7"
