Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-1543 CVE-2007-1544 CVE-2007-1545 CVE-2007-1546 CVE-2007-1547

Debian Bug     : 416038

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in nas, the Network Audio


A stack-based buffer overflow in the accept_att_local function in
server/os/connection.c in nas allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a long path slave name in a USL socket connection.


Integer overflow in the ProcAuWriteElement function in
server/dia/audispatch.c allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large
max_samples value.


The AddResource function in server/dia/resource.c allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) via a
nonexistent client ID.


Array index error allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via (1) large num_action values in the ProcAuSetElements
function in server/dia/audispatch.c or (2) a large inputNum parameter
to the compileInputs function in server/dia/auutil.c.


The ReadRequestFromClient function in server/os/io.c allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via multiple
simultaneous connections, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.

For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7-2sarge1

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) and the unstable
distribution (sid) these packages have been fixed in version 1.8-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your nas package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
