Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: AMD64 x86 emulation base libraries: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200507-28)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 30, 2005
Updated: August 02, 2005
Bug(s): #100686
ID: 200507-28

Synopsis


The x86 emulation base libraries for AMD64 contain a vulnerable version of
zlib which could potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code.


Background


The x86 emulation base libraries for AMD64 emulate the x86 (32-bit)
architecture on the AMD64 (64-bit) architecture.


Affected Packages

Package: app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs
Vulnerable: < 2.1.2
Unaffected: >= 2.1.2
Architectures: AMD64


Description


Earlier versions of emul-linux-x86-baselibs contain a vulnerable
version of zlib, which may lead to a buffer overflow.


Impact


By creating a specially crafted compressed data stream, attackers can
overwrite data structures for applications that use the x86 emulation
base libraries for AMD64, resulting in a Denial of Service and
potentially arbitrary code execution.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All AMD64 x86 emulation base libraries users should upgrade to the
latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-baselibs
