|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: TunePimp: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200607-11)
Date: July 28, 2006
Updated: June 01, 2007
A vulnerability in TunePimp has been reported which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
The TunePimp library (also referred to as libtunepimp) is a development library geared towards developers who wish to create MusicBrainz enabled tagging applications.
Vulnerable: <= 0.4.2
Unaffected: >= 0.5.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Kevin Kofler has reported a vulnerability where three stack variables are allocated with 255, 255 and 100 bytes respectively, yet 256 bytes are read into each. This could lead to buffer overflows.
Running an affected version of TunePimp could lead to the execution of arbitrary code by a remote attacker.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All tunepimp users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tunepimp-0.5."
MusicBrainz bug #1764
