Advisory URL: http://www.isecpartners.com/advisories/2007-002-flactools.txt Summary: -------- flac123, also known as flac-tools, is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in vorbis comment parsing. This allows for the execution of arbitrary code. Details: -------- The function local__vcentry_parse_value() in vorbiscomment.c does not correctly handle a long value_length, causing it to overflow the buffer "dest" during memcpy(). Fix Information: ---------------- This is the sole issue corrected in version 0.0.10. Thanks to: ---------- Dan Johnson for quickly producing the fixed version.
