SuSE: New libmodplug packages fix security vulnerability

This update of libmodplug0 fixes various following issues. An integer overflow error exists within the CSoundFile::ReadWav() function when processing certain WAV files. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted WAV file. Boundary errors within the CSoundFile::ReadS3M() function when processing S3M files can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted S3M file. An off-by-one error within the CSoundFile::ReadAMS() function can be exploited to cause a stack corruption by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted AMS file.

An off-by-one error within the CSoundFile::ReadDSM() function can be exploited to cause a memory corruption by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted DSM file. An off-by-one error within the CSoundFile::ReadAMS2() function can be exploited to cause a memory corruption by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted AMS file.

Updated packages are available from download.opensuse.org.

Description:

  This update of libmodplug0 fixes the following issues:

  1) An integer overflow error exists within the
  "CSoundFile::ReadWav()" function (src/load_wav.cpp) when
  processing certain WAV files. This can be exploited to
  cause a heap-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into
  opening a specially crafted WAV file. (CVE-2011-2911)

  2) Boundary errors within the "CSoundFile::ReadS3M()"
  function (src/load_s3m.cpp) when processing S3M files can
  be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows by
  tricking a user into opening a specially crafted S3M file.
  (CVE-2011-2912)


  3) An off-by-one error within the "CSoundFile::ReadAMS()"
  function (src/load_ams.cpp) can be exploited to cause a
  stack corruption by tricking a user into opening a
  specially crafted AMS file. (CVE-2011-2913)

  4) An off-by-one error within the "CSoundFile::ReadDSM()"
  function (src/load_dms.cpp) can be exploited to cause a
  memory corruption by tricking a user into opening a
  specially crafted DSM file. (CVE-2011-2914)

  5) An off-by-one error within the "CSoundFile::ReadAMS2()"
  function (src/load_ams.cpp) can be exploited to cause a
  memory corruption by tricking a user into opening a
  specially crafted AMS file. (CVE-2011-2915)

  Also an overflow in the ABC loader was fixed.
  (CVE-2011-1761)
