Background ========== ModPlug is a library for playing MOD-like music. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 media-libs/libmodplug < 0.8-r1 >= 0.8-r1 Description =========== Luigi Auriemma has reported various boundary errors in load_it.cpp and a boundary error in the "CSoundFile::ReadSample()" function in sndfile.cpp. Impact ====== A remote attacker can entice a user to read crafted modules or ITP files, which may trigger a buffer overflow resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All ModPlug users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libmodplug-0.8-r1" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2006-4192 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4192 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200612-04.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.
