Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:157-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : musicbrainz
Date : September 28, 2006
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple buffer overflows in libmusicbrainz (aka mb_client or
MusicBrainz Client Library) 2.1.2 and earlier, and SVN 8406 and
earlier, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or
execute arbitrary code via (1) a long Location header by the HTTP
server, which triggers an overflow in the MBHttp: :Download function in
lib/http.cpp; and (2) a long URL in RDF data, as demonstrated by a URL
in an rdf:resource field in an RDF XML document, which triggers
overflows in many functions in lib/rdfparse.c.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Update:

Packages are now available for Mandriva Linux 2007.
