Echelog on AMD-64 Variadic Parameter Multiple Iteration Stack Corruption DoS
Local Access Required
Denial of Service,
Loss of Availability
A stack corruption issue exists in Echelog. The program contains a flaw that may allow a local attacker to cause a denial of service. The issue is due to unspecified functions doing multiple iterations over variadic parameters. The issue can occur on AMD-64 platforms (and possibly others, although untested).
Upgrade to version 0.6.3 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
