Pavuk is web spider and website mirroring tool.
When Pavuk connects to a web server and the server sends back the HTTP
status code 305 (Use Proxy), Pavuk copies data from the HTTP Location
header in an unsafe manner.
<impact type="high">
An attacker could cause a stack-based buffer overflow which could lead
to arbitrary code execution with the rights of the user running Pavuk.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version.
All Pavuk users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv &quot;&gt;=net-misc/pavuk-0.9.28-r2&quot;
# emerge &quot;&gt;=&quot;net-misc/pavuk-0.9.28-r2</code>
