Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa reported a buffer overflow in
DHTRoutingTableDeserializer.cc (CVE-2009-3575) and a format string
vulnerability in the AbstractCommand::onAbort() function in
src/AbstractCommand.cc (CVE-2009-3617).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
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).
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
Do not use DHT (CVE-2009-3575) and disable logging (CVE-2009-3617).
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All aria2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-misc/aria2-1.6.3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
