Midnight Commander is a visual console file manager.
Midnight Commander contains several format string vulnerabilities
(CAN-2004-1004), buffer overflows (CAN-2004-1005), a memory
deallocation error (CAN-2004-1092) and a buffer underflow
<impact type="normal">
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Midnight
Commander or cause Denial of Service by freeing unallocated memory.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Midnight Commander users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-misc/mc-4.6.0-r13&quot;</code>
