Title: TagLib: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201206-16)
Date: June 22, 2012
Bug(s): #407673, #410953
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in TagLib, possibly
resulting in Denial of Service.
TagLib is a library for reading and editing audio meta data.
Vulnerable: < 1.7.1
Unaffected: >= 1.7.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in TagLib:
- The "analyzeCurrent()" function in ape/apeproperties.cpp contains a
division by zero error (CVE-2012-1107).
- The "parse()" function in inogg/xiphcomment.cpp contains an error
when processing the "vendorLength" field (CVE-2012-1108).
- The "mid()" function in toolkit/tbytevector.cpp contains an integer
overflow error (CVE-2012-1584).
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted OGG file with an application using TagLib, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All TagLib users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/taglib-1.7.1"
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
