Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : musicbrainz (MDKSA-2006:157-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple buffer overflows in libmusicbrainz (aka mb_client or
MusicBrainz Client Library) 2.1.2 and earlier, and SVN 8406 and
earlier, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
or execute arbitrary code via (1) a long Location header by the HTTP
server, which triggers an overflow in the MBHttp::Download function in
lib/http.cpp; and (2) a long URL in RDF data, as demonstrated by a URL
in an rdf:resource field in an RDF XML document, which triggers
overflows in many functions in lib/rdfparse.c.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Update :

Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2007.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
