Tor unspecified buffer overflow
|tor-unspec-bo (64748)||High Risk|
Tor is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow. By using unknown attack vectors, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Tor (0.2.1.29 or later), available from the Tor Web site. See References.
- Tor Web Site: Tor 0.2.1.29 is released (security patches).
