Mandriva Advisories MDKSA-2006:117 : libmms


Updated libmms packages fix buffer overflow vulnerability

July 6th, 2006


Stack-based buffer overflow in MiMMS 0.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause


a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code


via the (1) send_command, (2) string_utf16, (3) get_data, and (4)


get_media_packet functions, and possibly other functions. Libmms uses the


same vulnerable code.




The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.



The released versions of Mandriva GNU/Linux affected are:

  • 2006.0
