Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in CouchDB could result in Denial of Service.

Background
==========

Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free
document-oriented database.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

CouchDB does not properly sanitize the count parameter for Universally
Unique Identifiers (UUID) requests.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to CouchDB,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

The /_uuids handler can be disabled in local.ini with the following
configuration:

[httpd_global_handlers]
_uuids =

Resolution
==========

All CouchDB users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/couchdb-1.5.1"
