Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Kodi: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201710-21)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-10-22
Bug(s): #622384
ID: 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.

Affected Packages

Package: media-tv/kodi
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"
