GLSA-200607-13 : Audacious: Multiple heap and buffer overflows
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22142
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-13 (Audacious: Multiple heap and buffer overflows)
Luigi Auriemma has found that the adplug library fails to verify the size of the destination buffers in the unpacking instructions, resulting in various possible heap and buffer overflows.
An attacker can entice a user to load a specially crafted media file, resulting in a crash or possible execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Audacious users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/audacious-1.1.0'
