Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: STLport: Possible remote execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200703-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 06, 2007
Bug(s): #165837
ID: 200703-07

Synopsis

Two buffer overflows have been discovered in STLport possibly leading to the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background

STLport is a multi-platform C++ Standard Library implementation.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-libs/STLport
Vulnerable: < 5.0.3
Unaffected: >= 5.0.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Two buffer overflows have been discovered, one in "print floats" and one in the rope constructor.

Impact

Both of the buffer overflows could result in the remote execution of arbitrary code. Please note that the exploitability of the vulnerabilities depends on how the library is used by other software programs.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All STLport users should upgrade to the latest version.
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/STLport-5.0.3"
