Description Ville Skyttä 2007-02-25 11:26:34 EST

"Niels Provos libevent 1.2 and 1.2a allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (infinite loop) via a DNS response containing a label pointer that
references its own offset."

FE5 and FC6 are at 1.1a, not clear if those versions are affected.  Rawhide was
updated to 1.2a a few days ago, however (unlike the changelog says) the latest
upstream is 1.3a, not 1.2a.
Comment 1 Steve Dickson 2007-03-15 12:06:20 EDT
Rawhide has now been updated to 1.3a...

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 15:14:54 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-04 04:02:37 EDT
Fixed upstream version now in all current Fedora versions.  libevent version in
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 was not affected by this issue (only versions 1.2 -
1.2a were affected).
