Mandriva: Updated libid3tag packages fix denial of service Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake field.c in the libid3tag 0.15.0b library allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption) via an ID3_FIELD_TYPE_STRINGLIST field that ends in '\0', which triggers an infinite loop. The updated packages have been patched to correct this.
