<product type="ebuild">mpfr</product>

<revised>March 09, 2009: 01</revised>
<package name="dev-libs/mpfr" auto="yes" arch="*">

<vulnerable range="lt">2.4.1</vulnerable>
MPFR is a library for multiple-precision floating-point computations
with exact rounding.
Multiple buffer overflows have been reported in the mpfr_snprintf() and
mpfr_vsnprintf() functions.
<impact type="normal">
A remote user could exploit the vulnerability to cause a Denial of
Service in an application using MPFR via unknown vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MPRF users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-libs/mpfr-2.4.1&quot;</code>
