User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed ogg files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted ogg file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2009-2663) USN-682-1 provided updated libvorbis packages to fix multiple security vulnerabilities. The upstream security patch to fix CVE-2008-1420 introduced a regression when reading sound files encoded with libvorbis 1.0beta1. This update corrects the problem. Original advisory details: It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed sound files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted sound file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-1420)
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-825-1            August 24, 2009
libvorbis vulnerability
CVE-2008-1420, CVE-2009-2663
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

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 8.04 LTS:
  libvorbis0a                     1.2.0.dfsg-2ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 8.10:
  libvorbis0a                     1.2.0.dfsg-3.1ubuntu0.8.10.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
  libvorbis0a                     1.2.0.dfsg-3.1ubuntu0.9.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any applications that
use libvorbis, such as Totem and gtkpod, to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed
ogg files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted ogg file
with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2009-2663)

USN-682-1 provided updated libvorbis packages to fix multiple security
vulnerabilities. The upstream security patch to fix CVE-2008-1420
introduced a regression when reading sound files encoded with libvorbis
1.0beta1. This update corrects the problem.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain
 malformed sound files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
 crafted sound file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker
 could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-1420)
