GLSA-200604-04 : Kaffeine: Buffer overflow
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21197
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-04 (Kaffeine: Buffer overflow)
Kaffeine uses an unchecked buffer when fetching remote RAM playlists via HTTP.
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted RAM playlist resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Kaffeine users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-video/kaffeine-0.7.1-r2'
