GLSA-200805-15 : libid3tag: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 32352
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200805-15 (libid3tag: Denial of Service)
Kentaro Oda reported an infinite loop in the file field.c when parsing an MP3 file with an ID3_FIELD_TYPE_STRINGLIST field that ends in '\\0'.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted MP3 file, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libid3tag users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libid3tag-0.15.1b-r2'
