New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200909-02 (libvorbis: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Lucas Adamski reported that libvorbis does not correctly process file headers, related to static mode headers and encoding books.
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted OGG Vorbis file using an application that uses libvorbis, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libvorbis users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libvorbis-1.2.3'
