Synopsis
========

A heap-based buffer overflow in c-ares might allow remote attackers to
cause a Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

c-ares is a C library for asynchronous DNS requests (including name
resolves).

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-dns/c-ares < 1.12.0 >= 1.12.0

Description
===========

A hostname with an escaped trailing dot (such as "hello\\.") would have
its size calculated incorrectly leading to a single byte written beyond
the end of a buffer on the heap.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, able to provide a specially crafted hostname to an
application using c-ares, could potentially cause a Denial of Service
condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All c-ares users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-dns/c-ares-1.12.0"

References
==========
