27 September 2007

libmodplug vulnerability

Releases

Packages

Details

Luigi Auriemma discovered that libmodplug did not properly sanitize
its input. A specially crafted AMF file could be used to exploit this
situation to cause buffer overflows and possibly execute arbitrary code
as the user.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 6.06

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