<package name="net-p2p/limewire" auto="yes" arch="*">

<background>
<p>
LimeWire is a Java peer-to-peer client compatible with the
Gnutella file-sharing protocol.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
Two input validation errors were found in the handling of Gnutella
GET requests (CAN-2005-0788) and magnet requests (CAN-2005-0789).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
A remote attacker can craft a specific Gnutella GET request or use
directory traversal on magnet requests to read arbitrary files on the
system with the rights of the user running LimeWire.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All LimeWire users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-p2p/limewire-4.8.1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
