The name_parse function in evdns.c in libevent before 2.1.6-beta allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via vectors involving the label_len variable, which triggers an out-of-bounds stack read.

  • suse-upgrade-libevent-1_4-2
  • suse-upgrade-libevent-2_0-5
  • suse-upgrade-libevent-devel
