<p>libsmi is a library that allows management applications to access SMI
MIB module definitions.
<p>libsmi contains a buffer overflow vulnerability in the smiGetNode()
function in lib/smi.c.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A context-dependent attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code by
way of a specially crafted Object Identifier (OID).
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All libsmi users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-libs/libsmi-0.4.8-r1"
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since October 30, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
