Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libvorbis (MDKSA-2007:167-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

David Thiel discovered that libvorbis did not correctly verify the
size of certain headers, and did not correctly clean up a broken
stream. If a user were tricked into processing a specially crafted
Vorbis stream, a remote attacker could possibly cause a denial of
service or execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Update :

Due to a packaging problem, the libvorbis development package was not
able to be upgraded on Mandriva Linux 2007.1 This has been corrected
with this new update.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
Public Exploit Available : false

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 37080 (mandrake_MDKSA-2007-167.nasl)
