Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS : libtunepimp vulnerability (USN-318-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

Kevin Kofler discovered several buffer overflows in the tag parser. By
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted tagged multimedia
file (such as .ogg or .mp3 music) with an application that uses
libtunepimp, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with
the user's privileges.

This particularly affects the KDE applications 'Amarok' and 'Juk'.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
