Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2006-07-27 03:47:01 EDT
Woops, hit enter too soon. Ah well.

This is mainly a tracker bug, since I (the reporter) am also the maintainer. The
subject says most, a security vulnerability in dumb has been found and
catagories as CVE-2006-3668.

Description from CVE:
Heap-based buffer overflow in the it_read_envelope function in Dynamic Universal
Music Bibliotheque (DUMB) 0.9.3 and earlier, and current CVS as of 20060716,
allows user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary code via a ".it" (Impulse
Tracker) file with an enveloper with a large number of nodes.

Description from DSA:
Luigi Auriemma discovered that DUMB, a tracker music library, performs
insufficient sanitising of values parsed from IT music files, which might
lead to a buffer overflow and execution of arbitrary code if manipulated
files are read.

Debian has a fix, I'm currently test building a new version with this fix.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2006-07-27 04:08:44 EDT
Version 0.9.3-4 which fixes this has been build for FC-5 and devel and should
show up on a mirror near you soon.

In the future please make sure the application name appears in the summary title.

Thank you,
