Description

An exploitable code execution vulnerability exists in the ss-manager binary of Shadowsocks-libev 3.3.2. Specially crafted network packets sent to ss-manager can cause an arbitrary binary to run, resulting in code execution and privilege escalation. An attacker can send network packets to trigger this vulnerability.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libshadowsocks-libev2
  • suse-upgrade-shadowsocks-libev
  • suse-upgrade-shadowsocks-libev-devel
  • suse-upgrade-shadowsocks-libev-doc
