|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: libid3tag: Denial of Service (GLSA 200805-15)
Date: May 14, 2008
A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in libid3tag.
libid3tag is an ID3 tag manipulation library.
Vulnerable: < 0.15.1b-r2
Unaffected: >= 0.15.1b-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Kentaro Oda reported an infinite loop in the file field.c when parsing an MP3 file with an ID3_FIELD_TYPE_STRINGLIST field that ends in ' '.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted MP3 file, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libid3tag users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libid3tag-0.15.1b-r2"
