136048 : [GLSA-200903-40] Analog: Denial Of Service

Risk 3 : Gentoo Local Checks

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-40 (Analog: Denial of Service)

Diego E. Petteno reported that the Analog package in Gentoo is built with its own copy of bzip2, making it vulnerable to CVE-2008-1372 (GLSA 200804-02). Impact

A local attacker could place specially crafted log files into a log directory being analyzed by analog, e.g. /var/log/apache, resulting in a crash when being processed by the application. Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution:
All Analog users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/analog-6.0-r2" NOTE: Analog is now linked against the system bzip2 library.
