    <p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Fail2ban. Please review
      the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A remote attacker could send a crafted URL to a web site which, when
      parsed by Fail2ban, would deny a specific IP address. Also, errors in
      regular expressions within certain filters can cause arbitrary IP
      addresses to be banned. Furthermore, a local attacker could perform
      symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the
      user running the application.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All Fail2ban users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-analyzer/fail2ban-0.8.12
    </code>
