Updated synergy packages fix a security vulnerabilityPublication date: 17 Jan 2021
Affected Mageia releases : 7
In Synergy before version 1.12.0, a Synergy server can be crashed by receiving a kMsgHelloBack packet with a client name length set to 0xffffffff (4294967295) if the servers memory is less than 4 GB. It was verified that this issue does not cause a crash through the exception handler if the available memory of the Server is more than 4GB (CVE-2020-15117). The synergy package has been updated to version 1.12.0, fixing this issue and several other bugs.
