Paros is an intercepting proxy between a web server and a client
meant to be used for security assessments. It allows the user to watch
and modify the HTTP(S) traffic.

<description>
<p>
Andrew Christensen discovered that in older versions of Paros the
database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the
database administrator "sa".
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
Since the database listens globally by default, an attacker can
connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries
installed on the host.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Paros users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --snyc
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-proxy/paros-3.2.8&quot;</code>
</resolution>
