Vulnerability Assessment Details
CenterICQ: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200512-11
(CenterICQ: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Gentoo developer Wernfried Haas discovered that when the "Enable
peer-to-peer communications" option is enabled, CenterICQ opens a port
that insufficiently validates whatever is sent to it. Furthermore,
Zone-H Research reported a buffer overflow in the ktools library.
A remote attacker could cause a crash of CenterICQ by sending
packets to the peer-to-peer communications port, and potentially cause
the execution of arbitrary code by enticing a CenterICQ user to edit
overly long contact details.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All CenterICQ users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-im/centericq-4.21.0-r2"
Network Security Threat Level: Medium
