Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-01-14 08:52:14 UTC
Multiple integer overflow flaws (leading to heap-based buffer overflows) and
unchecked allocation vulnerabilities has been reported in the Amarok multimedia
player, when parsing malformed Audible digital audio files. A remote attacker
could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code in the context of user running
the Amarok multimedia player.
