Debian Security Advisory DSA-1597-1                                   Devin Carraway

Package        : mt-daapd
Vulnerability  : multiple vulnerabilities
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-5824 CVE-2007-5825 CVE-2008-1771
Debian Bug     : 459961 476241

Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the mt-daapd DAAP audio
server (also known as the Firefly Media Server).  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following three


    Insufficient validation and bounds checking of the Authorization:
    HTTP header enables a heap buffer overflow, potentially enabling
    the execution of arbitrary code.


    Format string vulnerabilities in debug logging within the
    authentication of XML-RPC requests could enable the execution of
    arbitrary code.


    An integer overflow weakness in the handling of HTTP POST
    variables could allow a heap buffer overflow and potentially
    arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.2.4+r1376-1.1+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9~r1696-1.3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mt-daapd package.
