User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu It was discovered that Amarok did not correctly handle certain malformed tags in Audible Audio (.aa) files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Audible Audio file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-739-1             March 17, 2009
amarok vulnerabilities
CVE-2009-0135, CVE-2009-0136
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
  amarok                          2:1.4.7-0ubuntu3.2

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  amarok                          2:1.4.9.1-0ubuntu3.2

Ubuntu 8.10:
  amarok                          2:1.4.10-0ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that Amarok did not correctly handle certain malformed
tags in Audible Audio (.aa) files. If a user were tricked into opening a
crafted Audible Audio file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user invoking the program.
