Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Audacious Plugins: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201203-14)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 16, 2012
Bug(s): #383991
ID: 201203-14

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities in Audacious Plugins could result in
execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.


Background

Plugins for the Audacious music player.

Affected Packages

Package: media-plugins/audacious-plugins
Vulnerable: < 3.1
Unaffected: >= 3.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Audacious Plugins:
  • The "CSoundFile::ReadWav()" function in load_wav.cpp contains an
    integer overflow which could cause a heap-based buffer overflow
    (CVE-2011-2911).
  • The "CSoundFile::ReadS3M()" function in load_s3m.cpp contains
    multiple boundary errors which could cause a stack-based buffer
    overflow (CVE-2011-2912).
  • The "CSoundFile::ReadAMS()" function in load_ams.cpp contains an
    off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2913).
  • The "CSoundFile::ReadDSM()" function in load_dms.cpp contains an
    off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2914).
  • The "CSoundFile::ReadAMS2()" function in load_ams.cpp contains an
    off-by-one error which could cause memory corruption (CVE-2011-2915).


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code, or a Denial of
Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Audacious Plugins users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=media-plugins/audacious-plugins-3.1"
