The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-16
(ModPlug: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in ModPlug:
The ReadS3M method in load_s3m.cpp fails to validate user-supplied
information, which could cause a stack-based buffer overflow
The 'CSoundFile::ReadWav()' function in load_wav.cpp contains an
integer overflow which could cause a heap-based buffer overflow
The 'CSoundFile::ReadS3M()' function in load_s3m.cpp contains
multiple boundary errors which could cause a stack-based buffer
The 'CSoundFile::ReadAMS()' function in load_ams.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2913).
The 'CSoundFile::ReadDSM()' function in load_dms.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2914).
The 'CSoundFile::ReadAMS2()' function in load_ams.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2915).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code, or a Denial of
There is no known workaround at this time.
