Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Mumble, the worst of which
could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Background
==========

Mumble is low-latency voice chat software intended for use with gaming.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-sound/mumble           < 1.2.6                    >= 1.2.6

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mumble:

* A crafted length prefix value can trigger a heap-based buffer
  overflow or NULL pointer dereference in the
  opus_packet_get_samples_per_frame function (CVE-2014-0044)
* A crafted packet can trigger an error in the opus_decode_float
  function, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2014-0045)
* A crafted SVG referencing local files can lead to resource exhaustion
  or hangs (CVE-2014-3755)
* Mumble does not properly escape HTML in some external strings before
  displaying them (CVE-2014-3756)

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Mumble users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/mumble-1.2.6"
