noip-updater is a tool used for updating IP addresses of dynamic DNS
records at
xenomuta found out that the GetNextLine() function in noip2.c misses a
length check, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow.
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
code by sending a specially crafted HTTP message to the client. NOTE:
Successful exploitation requires a man in the middle attack, a DNS
spoofing attack or a compromise of servers.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All noip-updater users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-dns/noip-updater-2.1.9&quot;</code>
