Related CVE assignments:

CVE-2009-0135:
Multiple integer overflows in the Audible::Tag::readTag function in
metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp in Amarok 1.4.10 through 2.0.1 allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an Audible Audio (.aa)
file with a large (1) nlen or (2) vlen Tag value, each of which
triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

CVE-2009-0136:
Multiple array index errors in the Audible::Tag::readTag function in
metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp in Amarok 1.4.10 through 2.0.1 allow
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
execute arbitrary code via an Audible Audio (.aa) file with a crafted
(1) nlen or (2) vlen Tag value, each of which can lead to an invalid
pointer dereference, or the writing of a 0x00 byte to an arbitrary
memory location, after an allocation failure.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2009-01-21 21:26:54 UTC
amarok-1.4.10-2.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
