Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: ModPlug: Multiple buffer overflows (GLSA 200612-04)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 10, 2006
Bug(s): #143404
ID: 200612-04

Synopsis

ModPlug contains several boundary errors that could lead to buffer overflows resulting in the possible execution of arbitrary code.

Background

ModPlug is a library for playing MOD-like music.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/libmodplug
Vulnerable: < 0.8-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.8-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


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:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libmodplug-0.8-r1"


References

CVE-2006-4192
