Package(s):logsurfer CVE #(s):CVE-2011-3626
Created:January 23, 2012 Updated:January 25, 2012
Description: From the Gentoo advisory:

Logsurfer log files may contain substrings used for executing external commands. The prepare_exec() function in src/exec.c contains a double-free vulnerability.

A remote attacker could inject specially-crafted strings into a log file processed by Logsurfer, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the Logsurfer user.
