Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow in Firebird might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Firebird is a multi-platform, open source relational database.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-db/firebird < 2.5.3.26780.0-r3 >= 2.5.3.26780.0-r3

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

The vulnerability is caused due to an error when processing requests
from remote clients.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Firebird users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-db/firebird-2.5.3.26780.0-r3"

NOTE: Firebird package was moved to the testing branch (unstable) of
Gentoo. There is currently no stable version of Firebird, and there
