GLSA-200903-34 : Amarok: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 35985
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-34 (Amarok: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Tobias Klein has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Amarok:
Multiple integer overflows in the Audible::Tag::readTag() function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp trigger heap-based buffer overflows (CVE-2009-0135).
Multiple array index errors in the Audible::Tag::readTag() function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp can lead to invalid pointer dereferences, or the writing of a 0x00 byte to an arbitrary memory location after an allocation failure (CVE-2009-0136).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Audible Audio (.aa) file with a large 'nlen' or 'vlen' tag value to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Amarok users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/amarok-1.4.10-r2'
