Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 : libmodplug vulnerabilities (USN-1148-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that libmodplug did not correctly handle certain
malformed S3M media files. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted S3M file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2011-1574)

It was discovered that libmodplug did not correctly handle certain
malformed ABC media files. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted ABC file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2011-1761)

The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.

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 libmodplug0c2 and / or libmodplug1 packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.3
(CVSS2#E:POC/RL:OF/RC:C)
