Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : libmodplug vulnerability (USN-521-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28126


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


Luigi Auriemma discovered that libmodplug did not properly sanitize its input. A specially crafted AMF file could be used to exploit this situation to cause buffer overflows and possibly execute arbitrary code as the user.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected libmodplug-dev and / or libmodplug0c2 packages.
