<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could craft a malicious web page which, when accessed
using Dillo, would trigger the format string vulnerability and
potentially execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
Dillo.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Dillo users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-client/dillo-0.8.3-r4&quot;</code>
</resolution>
