DUMB (Dynamic Universal Music Bibliotheque) is an IT, XM, S3M and MOD
player library.
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.
<impact type="normal">
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 &quot;&gt;=media-libs/dumb-0.9.3-r1&quot;</code>
