Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200411-31] ProZilla: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
ProZilla: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200411-31
(ProZilla: Multiple vulnerabilities)


ProZilla contains several exploitable buffer overflows in the code
handling the network protocols.

Impact

A remote attacker could setup a malicious server and entice a user to
retrieve files from that server using ProZilla. This could lead to the
execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
ProZilla.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.


Solution:
Currently, there is no released version of ProZilla that contains a fix
for these issues. The original author did not respond to our queries,
the code contains several other problems and more secure alternatives
exist. Therefore, the ProZilla package has been hard-masked prior to
complete removal from Portage, and current users are advised to unmerge
the package.
