Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: lib3ds: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201405-23)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 18, 2014
Bug(s): #308033
ID: 201405-23

Synopsis

A vulnerability in lib3ds might allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code.


Background

lib3ds is a library for managing 3D-Studio Release 3 and 4 .3DS files.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/lib3ds
Vulnerable: < 2.0.0_rc1
Unaffected: >= 2.0.0_rc1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

An array index error has been discovered in lib3ds.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted 3DS
file using an application linked against lib3ds, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All lib3ds users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/lib3ds-2.0.0_rc1"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
