Background ========== The TunePimp library (also referred to as libtunepimp) is a development library geared towards developers who wish to create MusicBrainz enabled tagging applications. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 media-libs/tunepimp <= 0.4.2 Vulnerable! ------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate to another package if one is available or wait for the existing packages to be marked stable by their architecture maintainers. Description =========== Kevin Kofler has reported a vulnerability where three stack variables are allocated with 255, 255 and 100 bytes respectively, yet 256 bytes are read into each. This could lead to buffer overflows. Impact ====== Running an affected version of TunePimp could lead to the execution of arbitrary code by a remote attacker. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== TunePimp has been masked in Portage pending the resolution of these issues. TunePimp users are advised to uninstall the package until further notice: # emerge --ask --unmerge "media-libs/tunepimp" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2006-3600 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3600 [ 2 ] MusicBrainz bug #1764 http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/1764 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200607-11.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost importance to us.
