    <p>
    Paros is an intercepting proxy between a web server and a client
    meant to be used for security assessments. It allows the user to watch
    and modify the HTTP(S) traffic.

  <description>
    <p>
    Andrew Christensen discovered that in older versions of Paros the
    database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the
    database administrator "sa".
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="high">
    <p>
    Since the database listens globally by default, an attacker can
    connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries
    installed on the host.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Paros users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --snyc
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-proxy/paros-3.2.8"</code>
  </resolution>
