<background>
<p>Echoping is a small program to test performances of a
remote host by sending it TCP packets.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>A boundary error exists within the “TLS_readline()” function, which
can be exploited to overflow a global buffer by sending an overly long
encrypted HTTP reply to Echoping. Also, a similar boundary error exists
within the “SSL_readline()” function, which can be exploited in the
same manner.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could send a specially crafted HTTP reply, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All Echoping users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
"&gt;=net-analyzer/echoping-6.0.2_p434"
</code>
