Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libid3tag (MDVSA-2008:103)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

field.c in the libid3tag 0.15.0b library allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption)
via an ID3_FIELD_TYPE_STRINGLIST field that ends in '�', which
triggers an infinite loop.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
