FreeBSD : libmusicbrainz -- multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities (ed124f8c-82a2-11db-b46b-0012f06707f0)

High Nessus Plugin ID 23761


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


SecurityFocus reports about libmusicbrainz :

The libmusicbrainz library is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because the application fails to check the size of the data before copying it into a finite-sized internal memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code within the context of the application or to cause a denial-of-service condition.


Update the affected package.
