FreeBSD : yamt -- buffer overflow and directory traversal issues (99b5cfa5-d3d2-11d9-8ffb-00061bc2ad93)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19046


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Stanislav Brabec discovered errors in yamt's path name handling that lead to buffer overflows and directory traversal issues. When processing a file with a maliciously crafted ID3 tag, yamt might overwrite arbitrary files or possibly execute arbitrary code.

The SuSE package ChangeLog contains :

- Several security fixes (#49337) :

- directory traversal in rename

- directory traversal in sort

- buffer overflow in sort

- buffer overflow in rename


Update the affected package.
