 Severity: High
    Title: Quagga: Arbitrary code execution
     Date: October 10, 2016
     Bugs: #577156
       ID: 201610-03

Synopsis
=======
A buffer overflow in Quagga might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
=========
Quagga is a free routing daemon replacing Zebra supporting RIP, OSPF
and BGP.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-misc/quagga           < 1.0.20160315         >= 1.0.20160315 

Description
==========
A memcpy function in the VPNv4 NLRI parser of bgp_mplsvpn.c does not
properly check the upper-bound length of received Labeled-VPN SAFI
routes data, which may allow for arbitrary code execution on the stack.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.

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

Resolution
=========
All Quagga users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/quagga-1.0.20160315"
