Fedora Extras : dumb-0.9.3-4 (2006-003)

High Nessus Plugin ID 62277


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Luigi Auriemma discovered that DUMB, a tracker music library, performs insufficient sanitising of values parsed from IT music files. This could result in a heap-based buffer overflow in the it_read_envelope function in Dynamic Universal Music Bibliotheque (DUMB) 0.9.3 and earlier and current CVS as of 20060716, including libdumb, allows user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary code via a '.it' (Impulse Tracker) file with an envelope with a large number of nodes.

Fedora Extras versions 0.9.3-3 and earlier are vulnerable to this.
Upgrade to 0.9.3-4 to fix this vulnerability.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected dumb package.
