Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in CyaSSL, the worst of which
may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

CyaSSL is a small, fast, portable implementation of TLS/SSL for
embedded devices to the cloud.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/cyassl *<= 2.9.4 Vulnerable!
-------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
to another package if one is available or wait for the
existing packages to be marked stable by their
architecture maintainers.

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in CyaSSL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

An attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or conduct a
man-in-the-middle attack.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

Upstream has discontinued the software in favor of wolfSSL. Therefore,
the CyaSSL package has been removed from the Gentoo repository and
current users are advised to unmerge the package.

# emerge --unmerge "net-libs/cyassl"
