Ampache is a PHP-based tool for managing, updating and playing audio files via a web interface.
LT discovered that the "match" parameter in albums.php is not properly sanitized before being processed. The Ampache development team also reported an error when handling user sessions.
A remote attacker could provide malicious input to the application, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary SQL code. He could also entice a user to open a specially crafted link to steal the user's session.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Ampache users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/ampache-18.104.22.168"
