Title: GNUMP3d: Directory traversal and XSS vulnerabilities (GLSA 200511-05)
Date: November 06, 2005
Updated: August 21, 2007
GNUMP3d is vulnerable to directory traversal and cross-site scripting attacks that may result in information disclosure or the compromise of a browser.
GNUMP3d is a streaming server for MP3s, OGG vorbis files, movies and other media formats.
Vulnerable: < 2.9_pre7
Unaffected: >= 2.9_pre7
Architectures: All supported architectures
Steve Kemp reported about two cross-site scripting attacks that are related to the handling of files (CVE-2005-3424, CVE-2005-3425). Also reported is a directory traversal vulnerability which comes from the attempt to sanitize input paths (CVE-2005-3123).
A remote attacker could exploit this to disclose sensitive information or inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNUMP3d users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/gnump3d-2.9_pre7"
