<background>
<p>UnAce is an utility to extract, view and test the contents of an ACE
archive.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>Ulf Harnhammar discovered that UnAce suffers from buffer overflows when
testing, unpacking or listing specially crafted ACE archives
(CAN-2005-0160). He also found out that UnAce is vulnerable to directory
traversal attacks, if an archive contains “./..” sequences or
absolute filenames (CAN-2005-0161).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>An attacker could exploit the buffer overflows to execute malicious code
or the directory traversals to overwrite arbitrary files.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All UnAce users should upgrade to the latest available version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-arch/unace-2.5-r3"
</code>
</resolution>
