Link    : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE-2014

Summary
=======

The package zeromq before version 4.0.5-1 is vulnerable to
man-in-the-middle downgrade and replay attacks.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 4.0.5-1.

# pacman -Syu "zeromq>=4.0.5-1"

The problem has been fixed upstream in version 4.0.5.

Workaround
==========

None.

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

- CVE-2014-7202 (downgrade attack)
A bug in stream_engine.cpp allows man-in-the-middle attackers to conduct
downgrade attacks via a crafted connection request.

- CVE-2014-7203 (replay attack)
libzmq did not ensure that nonces are unique, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to conduct replay attacks via unspecified
vectors.

Impact
======

A remote attacker is able to perform unauthorized modifications by using
a downgrade attack to target vulnerable protocol versions or by
performing a replay attack of a recorded communication.
