Synopsis
========

may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Background

Tor is an implementation of second generation Onion Routing, a
connection-oriented anonymizing communication service.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Description

Impact
======

with the privileges of the Tor process or create a Denial of Service.

Workaround
==========

Resolution
==========

All Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/tor-0.2.1.30"
