Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in ZeroMQ could lead to a Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

Looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency
framework.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/zeromq < 4.3.3 >= 4.3.3

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

It was discovered that ZeroMQ does not properly handle connecting peers
before a handshake is completed.

Impact
======

An unauthenticated remote attacker able to connect to a ZeroMQ
endpoint, even with CURVE encryption/authentication enabled, can cause
a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ZeroMQ users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/zeromq-4.3.3"

References
