GLSA-200504-07 : GnomeVFS, libcdaudio: CDDB response overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-07
(GnomeVFS, libcdaudio: CDDB response overflow)

Joseph VanAndel has discovered a buffer overflow in Grip when
processing large CDDB results (see GLSA 200503-21). The same overflow
is present in GnomeVFS and libcdaudio code.

Impact :

A malicious CDDB server could cause applications making use of GnomeVFS
or libcdaudio libraries to crash, potentially allowing the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All GnomeVFS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose gnome-base/gnome-vfs
All libcdaudio users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libcdaudio-0.99.10-r1'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
