<title>libmusicbrainz: Multiple buffer overflows</title>
Multiple buffer overflows have been found in libmusicbrainz, which could
lead to a Denial of Service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code.

libmusicbrainz is a client library used to access MusicBrainz music
meta data.
Luigi Auriemma reported a possible buffer overflow in the
MBHttp::Download function of lib/http.cpp as well as several possible
buffer overflows in lib/rdfparse.c.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could be able to execute arbitrary code or cause
Denial of Service by making use of an overly long "Location" header in
an HTTP redirect message from a malicious server or a long URL in
malicious RDF feeds.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libmusicbrainz users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/musicbrainz-2.1.4&quot;</code>
