Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa reported a buffer overflow in (CVE-2009-3575) and a format string
vulnerability in the AbstractCommand::onAbort() function in
src/ (CVE-2009-3617).
<impact type="normal">
A remote, unauthenticated attacker could possibly execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application or cause a
Denial of Service (application crash).
Do not use DHT (CVE-2009-3575) and disable logging (CVE-2009-3617).
All aria2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-misc/aria2-1.6.3&quot;</code>
