Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: TagLib: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201206-16)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 22, 2012
Bug(s): #407673, #410953
ID: 201206-16

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in TagLib, possibly
resulting in Denial of Service.


Background

TagLib is a library for reading and editing audio meta data.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/taglib
Vulnerable: < 1.7.1
Unaffected: >= 1.7.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in TagLib:
  • The "analyzeCurrent()" function in ape/apeproperties.cpp contains a
    division by zero error (CVE-2012-1107).
  • The "parse()" function in inogg/xiphcomment.cpp contains an error
    when processing the "vendorLength" field (CVE-2012-1108).
  • The "mid()" function in toolkit/tbytevector.cpp contains an integer
    overflow error (CVE-2012-1584).


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted OGG file with an application using TagLib, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All TagLib users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/taglib-1.7.1"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
