GLSA-200607-11 : TunePimp: Buffer overflow
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22119
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-11 (TunePimp: Buffer overflow)
Kevin Kofler has reported a vulnerability where three stack variables are allocated with 255, 255 and 100 bytes respectively, yet 256 bytes are read into each. This could lead to buffer overflows.
Running an affected version of TunePimp could lead to the execution of arbitrary code by a remote attacker.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll tunepimp users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/tunepimp-0.5.'
