ID: 200504-26

Synopsis


A buffer overflow has been reported in Convert-UUlib, potentially resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code.


Background


Convert-UUlib provides a Perl interface to the uulib library, allowing
Perl applications to access data encoded in a variety of formats.

Description


A vulnerability has been reported in Convert-UUlib where a malformed
parameter can be provided by an attacker allowing a read operation to
overflow a buffer. The vendor credits Mark Martinec and Robert Lewis
with the discovery.


Impact


Successful exploitation would permit an attacker to run arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the Perl application.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-perl/Convert-UUlib-1.051"
