  Severity: High
     Title: AMD64 x86 emulation base libraries: Buffer overflow

      Bugs: #100686

Synopsis
=======
The x86 emulation base libraries for AMD64 contain a vulnerable version
of zlib which could potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
The x86 emulation base libraries for AMD64 emulate the x86 (32-bit)
architecture on the AMD64 (64-bit) architecture.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                  /  Vulnerable  /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  emul-linux-x86-baselibs        < 2.2                       >= 2.2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     # Package 1 only applies to AMD64 users.

Description
==========
Earlier versions of emul-linux-x86-baselibs contain a vulnerable
version of zlib, which may lead to a buffer overflow.

Impact
=====
By creating a specially crafted compressed data stream, attackers can
overwrite data structures for applications that use the x86 emulation
base libraries for AMD64, resulting in a Denial of Service and
potentially arbitrary code execution.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All AMD64 x86 emulation base libraries users should upgrade to the
latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs-2.2"
