Background ========== hivex is a library for reading and writing Windows Registry 'hive' binary files. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 app-misc/hivex < 1.3.11 >= 1.3.11 Description =========== Manipulating a short or truncated hive file may trigger an out-of-bounds read or write in hivex. Impact ====== A context-dependent attacker could cause an application linked against hivex to pass a short or truncated hive file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All hivex users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-misc/hivex-1.3.11" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2014-9273 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-9273 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: https://security.gentoo.org/glsa/201503-07 Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users' machines is of utmost importance to us.
