Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in Mono, the worst of which
allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Mono is an open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET Framework.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-util/mono-debugger < 2.8.1-r1 >= 2.8.1-r1
2 dev-lang/mono < 2.10.2-r1 >= 2.10.2-r1
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages

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

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

Impact
======

A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code, bypass general
constraints, obtain the source code for .aspx applications, obtain
other sensitive information, cause a Denial of Service, modify internal
data structures, or corrupt the internal state of the security manager.

A local attacker could entice a user into running Mono debugger in a
directory containing a specially crafted library file to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Mono debugger.

A context-dependant attacker could bypass the authentication mechanism
provided by the XML Signature specification.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Mono debugger users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-util/mono-debugger-2.8.1-r1"

All Mono users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/mono-2.10.2-r1"
