Description Ville Skyttä 2007-02-25 16:26:34 UTC
http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-1030 "Niels Provos libevent 1.2 and 1.2a allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a DNS response containing a label pointer that references its own offset." FE5 and FC6 are at 1.1a, not clear if those versions are affected. Rawhide was updated to 1.2a a few days ago, however (unlike the changelog says) the latest upstream is 1.3a, not 1.2a.

Rawhide has now been updated to 1.3a...
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:14:54 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-04 08:02:37 UTC
Fixed upstream version now in all current Fedora versions. libevent version in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 was not affected by this issue (only versions 1.2 - 1.2a were affected).
