Background ========== DUMB (Dynamic Universal Music Bibliotheque) is an IT, XM, S3M and MOD player library. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 media-libs/dumb < 0.9.3-r1 >= 0.9.3-r1 Description =========== Luigi Auriemma found a heap-based buffer overflow in the it_read_envelope function which reads the envelope values for volume, pan and pitch of the instruments referenced in a ".it" (Impulse Tracker) file with a large number of nodes. Impact ====== By enticing a user to load a malicious ".it" (Impulse Tracker) file, an attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application that uses a vulnerable DUMB library. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All users of DUMB should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/dumb-0.9.3-r1" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2006-3668 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3668 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200608-14.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.
