GLSA-200610-09 : libmusicbrainz: Multiple buffer overflows
High Nessus Plugin ID 22920
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200610-09 (libmusicbrainz: Multiple buffer overflows)
Luigi Auriemma reported a possible buffer overflow in the MBHttp::Download function of lib/http.cpp as well as several possible buffer overflows in lib/rdfparse.c.
A remote attacker could be able to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service by making use of an overly long 'Location' header in an HTTP redirect message from a malicious server or a long URL in malicious RDF feeds.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libmusicbrainz users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/musicbrainz-2.1.4'
