Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: libsamplerate: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200812-05)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 02, 2008
Bug(s): #237037
ID: 200812-05

Synopsis

A buffer overflow vulnerability in libsamplerate might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Secret Rabbit Code (aka libsamplerate) is a Sample Rate Converter for audio.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/libsamplerate
Vulnerable: < 0.1.4
Unaffected: >= 0.1.4
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Russell O'Connor reported a buffer overflow in src/src_sinc.c related to low conversion ratios.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a specially crafted audio file possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All libsamplerate users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libsamplerate-0.1.4"
