Title: ModPlug: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201203-16)
Date: March 16, 2012
Bug(s): #362503, #379557
Multiple vulnerabilities in ModPlug could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
ModPlug is a library for playing MOD-like music.
Vulnerable: < 0.8.8.4
Unaffected: >= 0.8.8.4
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in ModPlug:
- The ReadS3M method in load_s3m.cpp fails to validate user-supplied
information, which could cause a stack-based buffer overflow
- The "CSoundFile::ReadWav()" function in load_wav.cpp contains an
integer overflow which could cause a heap-based buffer overflow
- The "CSoundFile::ReadS3M()" function in load_s3m.cpp contains
multiple boundary errors which could cause a stack-based buffer
- The "CSoundFile::ReadAMS()" function in load_ams.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2913).
- The "CSoundFile::ReadDSM()" function in load_dms.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2914).
- The "CSoundFile::ReadAMS2()" function in load_ams.cpp contains an
off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2915).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code, or a Denial of
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ModPlug users should upgrade to the latest version:
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libmodplug-0.8.8.4"
available since August 27, 2011. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
