[GLSA-200608-14] DUMB: Heap buffer overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DUMB: Heap buffer overflow

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-14
(DUMB: Heap buffer overflow)

Luigi Auriemma found a heap-based buffer overflow in the
it_read_envelope function which reads the envelope values for volume,
pan and pitch of the instruments referenced in a ".it" (Impulse
Tracker) file with a large number of nodes.


By enticing a user to load a malicious ".it" (Impulse Tracker) file, an
attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
the application that uses a vulnerable DUMB library.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All users of DUMB should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/dumb-0.9.3-r1"

Network Security Threat Level: Medium
