<background>
<p>abcm2ps is a program to convert abc files to Postscript files.</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in abcm2ps:</p>
<ul>
<li>Boundary errors in the PUT0 and PUT1 macros, the trim_title()
function, or a long "-O" command line option can lead to a buffer
overflow (CVE-2010-3441).
</li>
<li>A vulnerability in the getarena() function in abc2ps.c can cause a
heap-based buffer overflow in abcm2ps (CVE-2010-4743).
</li>
<li>Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities (CVE-2010-4744).</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to load a specially crafted ABC
file or use a long -O option on the command line, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All abcm2ps users should upgrade to the latest stable version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-sound/abcm2ps-5.9.13"
</code>
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since August 27, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
