Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in Quagga, the worst of which
leading to remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Quagga is a free routing daemon replacing Zebra supporting RIP, OSPF
and BGP.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-misc/quagga < 0.99.20 >= 0.99.20

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Quagga. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A BGP peer could send a Route-Refresh message with specially-crafted
ORF record, which can cause Quagga's bgpd to crash or possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Quagga's bgpd; a
BGP update AS path request with unknown AS type, or malformed
AS-Pathlimit or Extended-Community attributes could lead to Denial of
Service (daemon crash), an error in bgpd when handling AS_PATH
attributes within UPDATE messages can
be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow resulting in a crash
of the
daemon and disruption of IPv4 routing, two errors in ospf6d and ospfd
can each be exploited to crash the daemon and disrupt IP routing.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Quagga users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/quagga-0.99.20 "
