Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libksba which might allow
remote attackers to obtain sensitive information or crash an
libksba-based application.

Background
==========

Libksba is a X.509 and CMS (PKCS#7) library.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/libksba < 1.3.5 >= 1.3.5

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

It was found that an unproportionate amount of memory is allocated when
parsing crafted certificates in libskba, which may lead to Denial of
Service condition.

Moreover in libksba 1.3.4, allocated memory is uninitialized and could
potentially contain sensitive data left in freed memory block.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, able to interact with an libksba-based application,
could possibly obtain sensitive information or cause a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libksba users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libksba-1.3.5"
