Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : libmodplug vulnerability (USN-521-1)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Luigi Auriemma discovered that libmodplug did not properly sanitize
its input. A specially crafted AMF file could be used to exploit this
situation to cause buffer overflows and possibly execute arbitrary
code as the user.

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 libmodplug-dev and / or libmodplug0c2 packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.0
(CVSS2#E:POC/RL:OF/RC:ND)
Public Exploit Available : true
