SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-18 (Ringtone Tools: Buffer overflow vulnerability)
Qiao Zhang has discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the 'parse_emelody' function in 'parse_emelody.c'.
A remote attacker could entice a Ringtone Tools user to open a specially crafted eMelody file, which would potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
