Package : libmodplug
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2011-1761 CVE-2011-2911 CVE-2011-2912 CVE-2011-2913
CVE-2011-2914 CVE-2011-2915

Several vulnerabilities that can lead to the execution of arbitrary code
have been discovered in libmodplug, a library for mod music based on
ModPlug. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following issues:

CVE-2011-1761

epiphant discovered that the abc file parser is vulnerable to several
stack-based buffer overflows that potentially lead to the execution
of arbitrary code.

CVE-2011-2911

Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadWav
function is vulnerable to an integer overflow which leads to a
heap-based buffer overflow. An attacker can exploit this flaw to
potentially execute arbitrary code by tricking a victim into opening
crafted WAV files.

CVE-2011-2912

Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadS3M
function is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow. An attacker
can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code by
tricking a victim into opening crafted S3M files.

CVE-2011-2913

Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadAMS
function suffers from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to
memory corruption. An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially
execute arbitrary code by tricking a victim into opening crafted AMS
files.

CVE-2011-2914

It was discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadDSM function suffers
from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to memory corruption.
An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary
code by tricking a victim into opening crafted DSM files.

CVE-2011-2915

It was discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadAMS2 function suffers
from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to memory corruption.
An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary
code by tricking a victim into opening crafted AMS files.


For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:0.8.8.1-1+squeeze2.

For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
has been fixed in version 1:0.8.8.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libmodplug packages.

Package : fex
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitization
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2012-0869

Nicola Fioravanti discovered that F*X, a web service for transferring
very large files, is not properly sanitizing input parameters of the "fup"
script. An attacker can use this flaw to conduct reflected cross-site
scripting attacks via various script parameters.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 20100208+debian1-1+squeeze2.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed
in version 20120215-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your fex packages.
