Fedora Extras : dumb-0.9.3-4 (2006-003)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Luigi Auriemma discovered that DUMB, a tracker music library, performs
insufficient sanitising of values parsed from IT music files. This
could result in a heap-based buffer overflow in the it_read_envelope
function in Dynamic Universal Music Bibliotheque (DUMB) 0.9.3 and
earlier and current CVS as of 20060716, including libdumb, allows
user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary code via a '.it'
(Impulse Tracker) file with an envelope with a large number of nodes.

Fedora Extras versions 0.9.3-3 and earlier are vulnerable to this.
Upgrade to 0.9.3-4 to fix this vulnerability.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
