<title>usbmuxd: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code</title>
<synopsis>A buffer overflow vulnerability in usbmuxd could result in the
execution of arbitrary code.
<product type="ebuild">usbmuxd</product>

<package name="app-pda/usbmuxd" auto="yes" arch="*">

<vulnerable range="lt">1.0.7-r1</vulnerable>
<p>usbmuxd is a USB multiplex daemon for use with Apple iPhone and iPod
Touch devices.
<p>The "receive_packet()" function in libusbmuxd.c contains a boundary
error when parsing the "SerialNumber" field of a USB device, which could
cause a heap-based buffer overflow.
<impact type="normal">
<p>An attacker could gain physical access or entice a user to connect to a
malicious USB device, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the "usbmux" user.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All usbmuxd users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-pda/usbmuxd-1.0.7-r1"
