Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in RabbitMQ C client might allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

A C-language AMQP client library for use with v2.0+ of the RabbitMQ
broker.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected

  1  net-libs/rabbitmq-c          < 0.10.0                  >= 0.10.0

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

It was discovered that RabbitMQ C client incorrectly handled certain
inputs.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, by sending a specially crafted request, could
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or
cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All RabbitMQ C client users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/rabbitmq-c-0.10.0"
