Multiple heap and buffer overflows exist in AdPlug.
|Package||media-libs/adplug on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.0.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.0.1|
AdPlug is a free, cross-platform, and hardware-independent AdLib sound player library.
AdPlug is vulnerable to buffer and heap overflows when processing the following types of files: CFF, MTK, DMO, U6M, DTM, and S3M.
By enticing a user to load a specially crafted file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running AdPlug.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
All AdPlug users should update to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/adplug-2.0.1"
