Description Adam Mariš 2017-06-26 13:13:41 UTC
An integer overflow vulnerability in ptp-pack.c (ptp_unpack_OPL function) of libmtp (version 1.1.12 and below) allows attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds memory access) or maybe remote code execution by inserting a mobile device into a personal computer through a USB cable.

Stefan, can you please explain how the libmtp flaw is related to the newly
added/mentioned libgphoto2 tracker bug? Does libgphoto2 bundle libmtp?

Hi Robert,

I've not tested this, so I can't 100% claim that libgphoto2 is also affected. However, I've noticed the following commits in libgphoto2 and at least one of them seems related enough to handle them as a part of this:

https://github.com/gphoto/libgphoto2/commit/203df81b9d97e820411e1eb94ae08139af73bbd0
https://github.com/gphoto/libgphoto2/commit/e25b3983489cd290edef693e78c0af694d3cd010

Let me know if you have any further questions.
