GLSA-200811-03 : FAAD2: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 34734
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200811-03 (FAAD2: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
The ICST-ERCIS (Peking University) reported a heap-based buffer overflow in the decodeMP4file() function in frontend/main.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted MPEG-4 (MP4) file in an application using FAAD2, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll FAAD2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/faad2-2.6.1-r2'
