Background ========== Amarok is an advanced music player. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 media-sound/amarok < 1.4.5-r1 >= 1.4.5-r1 Description =========== The Magnatune downloader doesn't quote the "m_currentAlbumFileName" parameter while calling the "unzip" shell command. Impact ====== A compromised or malicious Magnatune server can remotely execute arbitrary shell code with the rights of the user running Amarok on a client that have previously registered for buying music. Workaround ========== Do not use the Magnatune component of Amarok. Resolution ========== All Amarok users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/amarok-1.4.5-r1" References ========== [ 1 ] SA24159 http://secunia.com/advisories/24159 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200703-11.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.
