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

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"
