USN-318-1: libtunepimp vulnerability

13 July 2006

libtunepimp vulnerability



Kevin Kofler discovered several buffer overflows in the tag parser. By
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted tagged multimedia
file (such as .ogg or .mp3 music) with an application that uses
libtunepimp, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with
the user's privileges.

This particularly affects the KDE applications 'Amarok' and 'Juk'.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06
  • libtunepimp2c2a - 0.3.0-9.1ubuntu3.1
Ubuntu 5.10
  • libtunepimp2c2 - 0.3.0-2ubuntu7.1
Ubuntu 5.04
  • libtunepimp2 - 0.3.0-2ubuntu5.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
