GLSA-201405-23 : lib3ds: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 74065
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201405-23 (lib3ds: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
An array index error has been discovered in lib3ds.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted 3DS file using an application linked against lib3ds, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll lib3ds 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lib3ds-2.0.0_rc1' All lib3ds 1.3 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lib3ds-1.3.0-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
