Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tor: Information disclosure
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200508-16
(Tor: Information disclosure)
The Diffie-Hellman implementation of Tor fails to verify the
cryptographic strength of keys which are used during handshakes.
By setting up a malicious Tor server and enticing users to use
this server as first hop, a remote attacker could read and modify all
traffic of the user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Tor users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/tor-0.1.0.14"
Threat Level: Low
