Synopsis
=======
A buffer overflow in pump might allow remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
=========
BOOTP and DHCP client for automatic IP configuration.

Affected packages
================
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-misc/pump <= 0.8.24-r4 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
==========
It was discovered that there was an arbitrary code execution
vulnerability in the pump DHCP/BOOTP client.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to connect to a malicious server,
could cause the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running pump DHCP/BOOTP client.

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

Resolution
=========
Gentoo has discontinued support for pump. We recommend that users
unmerge pump:

# emerge --unmerge "net-misc/pump"
