Cyrus-SASL is an implementation of the Simple Authentication and
Security Layer.
Cyrus-SASL contains a remote buffer overflow in the digestmda5.c file.
Additionally, under certain conditions it is possible for a local user
to exploit a vulnerability in the way the SASL_PATH environment
variable is honored (CAN-2004-0884).
<impact type="high">
An attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code with the Effective
ID of the application calling the Cyrus-SASL libraries.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Cyrus-SASL users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv &quot;&gt;=dev-libs/cyrus-sasl-2.1.18-r2&quot;
# emerge &quot;&gt;=dev-libs/cyrus-sasl-2.1.18-r2&quot;</code>
