Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20155
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-05 (GNUMP3d: Directory traversal and XSS vulnerabilities)
Steve Kemp reported about two cross-site scripting attacks that are related to the handling of files (CVE-2005-3424, CVE-2005-3425). Also reported is a directory traversal vulnerability which comes from the attempt to sanitize input paths (CVE-2005-3123).
A remote attacker could exploit this to disclose sensitive information or inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll GNUMP3d users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/gnump3d-2.9_pre7'
