The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-34
(Amarok: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Tobias Klein has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Amarok:
Multiple integer overflows in the Audible::Tag::readTag()
function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp trigger heap-based buffer
Multiple array index errors in the
Audible::Tag::readTag() function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp can
lead to invalid pointer dereferences, or the writing of a 0x00 byte to
an arbitrary memory location after an allocation failure
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
Audible Audio (.aa) file with a large 'nlen' or 'vlen' tag value to
execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
