Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in mbed TLS, the worst of
which could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

mbed TLS (previously PolarSSL) is an =E2=80=9Ceasy to understand, use,
integrate and expand=E2=80=9D implementation of the TLS and SSL protocols a=
nd
the respective cryptographic algorithms and support code required.

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker, through multiple vectors, could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All mbed TLS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge –sync
# emerge –ask –oneshot –verbose “>=3Dnet-libs/mbedtls-2.7.2″
