Tobias Klein has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Amarok:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Multiple integer overflows in the Audible::Tag::readTag()
function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp trigger heap-based buffer
overflows (CVE-2009-0135).</li>
<li>Multiple array index errors in the
Audible::Tag::readTag() function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp can
lead to invalid pointer dereferences, or the writing of a 0x00 byte to
an arbitrary memory location after an allocation failure
(CVE-2009-0136).</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
Audible Audio (.aa) file with a large "nlen" or "vlen" tag value to
execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Amarok users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/amarok-1.4.10-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
