Date: July 28, 2006
Updated: June 01, 2007
Bug(s): #140184
ID: 200607-11

Synopsis

A vulnerability in TunePimp has been reported which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

The TunePimp library (also referred to as libtunepimp) is a development library geared towards developers who wish to create MusicBrainz enabled tagging applications.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/tunepimp
Vulnerable: <= 0.4.2
Unaffected: >= 0.5.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

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.

Impact

Running an affected version of TunePimp could lead to the execution of arbitrary code by a remote attacker.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All tunepimp users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tunepimp-0.5."
