Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Motion allows a remote attacker to cause denial of
service.

Background
==========

Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from one or more
cameras and is able to detect motions.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-video/motion         < 4.3.2                      >= 4.3.2

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

The Motion HTTP server does not correctly perform URL decoding. If the
HTTP server receives a request for a URL containing an incomplete
percent-encoded character, a flaw in parsing results in an infinite loop
trying to parse the rest of the character, which eventually results in a
denial of service condition when reading out-of-bounds.

Impact
======

A remote attacker can trigger a denial of service condition in Motion.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Motion users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/motion-4.3.2"

References
==========
