Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: libmusicbrainz: Multiple buffer overflows (GLSA 200610-09)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: October 22, 2006
Bug(s): #144089
ID: 200610-09

Synopsis

Multiple buffer overflows have been found in libmusicbrainz, which could lead to a Denial of Service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

libmusicbrainz is a client library used to access MusicBrainz music meta data.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/musicbrainz
Vulnerable: < 2.1.4
Unaffected: >= 2.1.4
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Luigi Auriemma reported a possible buffer overflow in the MBHttp::Download function of lib/http.cpp as well as several possible buffer overflows in lib/rdfparse.c.

Impact

A remote attacker could be able to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service by making use of an overly long "Location" header in an HTTP redirect message from a malicious server or a long URL in malicious RDF feeds.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All libmusicbrainz users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/musicbrainz-2.1.4"


References

CVE-2006-4197
