USN-238-2: Blender vulnerability
Posted on: 01/06/2006 10:52 AM

A new Blender vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-238-2 January 06, 2006
blender vulnerability
CVE-2005-4470
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

blender

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.37a-1ubuntu1.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

The original advisory in USN-238-1 accidentially contained a wrong CVE
number and advisory text. We apologize for this error.

Details follow:

Damian Put discovered that Blender did not properly validate a
'length' value in .blend files. Negative values led to an
insufficiently sized memory allocation. By tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted .blend file, this could be exploited to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Blender user.
