GLSA-200909-06 : aMule: Parameter injection
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40914
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200909-06 (aMule: Parameter injection)
Sam Hocevar discovered that the aMule preview function does not properly sanitize file names.
A remote attacker could entice a user to download a file with a specially crafted file name to inject arbitrary arguments to the victim's video player.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll aMule users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-p2p/amule-2.2.5'
