Title: Amarok: User-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200703-11)
Date: March 13, 2007
The Magnatune component shipped with Amarok is vulnerable to the injection of arbitrary shell code from a malicious Magnatune server.
Amarok is an advanced music player.
Vulnerable: < 1.4.5-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.5-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
The Magnatune downloader doesn't quote the "m_currentAlbumFileName" parameter while calling the "unzip" shell command.
A compromised or malicious Magnatune server can remotely execute arbitrary shell code with the rights of the user running Amarok on a client that have previously registered for buying music.
Do not use the Magnatune component of Amarok.
All Amarok users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/amarok-1.4.5-r1"
