Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: TPTEST: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201310-16)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: October 26, 2013
Bug(s): #261191
ID: 201310-16

Synopsis

Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in TPTEST may allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.


Background

TPTEST is a tool to measure the speed of a user’s Internet connection.

Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/tptest
Vulnerable: < 3.1.7-r2
Unaffected: >= 3.1.7-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The GetStatsFromLine() function in TPTEST is vulnerable to buffer
overflows from STATS lines with long email and pwd fields.


Impact

A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted STATS line, possibly
resulting in arbitrary code execution or a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All TPTEST users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/tptest-3.1.7-r2"
