GNUMP3d is vulnerable to directory traversal and cross-site scripting attacks that may result in information disclosure or the compromise of a browser.
|Package||media-sound/gnump3d on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.9_pre7|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.9_pre7|
GNUMP3d is a streaming server for MP3s, OGG vorbis files, movies and other media formats.
Steve Kemp reported about two cross-site scripting attacks that are related to the handling of files (CVE-2005-3424, CVE-2005-3425). Also reported is a directory traversal vulnerability which comes from the attempt to sanitize input paths (CVE-2005-3123).
A remote attacker could exploit this to disclose sensitive information or inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNUMP3d users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/gnump3d-2.9_pre7"
