Description Murray McAllister 2014-02-03 14:43:42 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2012-2250 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2012-2250
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-2250
Assigned: 20120416
Reference: https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git?a=blob_plain;hb=HEAD;f=ChangeLog

Tor before allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (assertion failure and daemon exit) by performing link
protocol negotiation incorrectly.

This issue only affects the version of tor in EPEL 5. Fedora and EPEL 6 are using and are therefore not affected.

Comment 1 Murray McAllister 2014-02-03 14:46:56 UTC
Created tor tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-5 [bug 1060769]

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2014-11-09 15:42:29 UTC
tor- has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 3 Jamie Nguyen 2014-11-11 16:05:01 UTC
All active branches of Fedora and EPEL now have tor and are thus no longer affected by this bug.
