GLSA-200812-05 : libsamplerate: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 35022
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-05 (libsamplerate: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Russell O'Connor reported a buffer overflow in src/src_sinc.c related to low conversion ratios.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a specially crafted audio file possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libsamplerate users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libsamplerate-0.1.4'
