Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2012-2250 to
the following vulnerability:
Tor before 0.2.3.24-rc 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 0.2.3.25 and are therefore not affected.
