Title: Kodi: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201710-21)
An integer overflow vulnerability in Kodi could result in remote
execution of arbitrary code.
Kodi is a free and open source media-center and entertainment hub
previously known as XBMC.
Vulnerable: < 17.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 17.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Kodi is vulnerable due to shipping with an embedded version of UnRAR.
Please review the referenced CVE identifier for details.
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to process a specifically crafted
RAR file, could execute arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Kodi users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-tv/kodi-17.3-r1"
