==============1) Introduction
==============

AdPlug is an open source library used for playing many Adlib file
formats.
It also includes some programs and plugins for Winamp and XMMS.

======2) Bugs
======

The library is affected by various heap and stack overflow
vulnerabilities.
As intuitable by the types of bugs almost all the unpacking
instructions don't verify the size of the destination buffers and trust
in the values provided by the same files which are used for allocating
the needed buffers (except in the CFF files where it has a fixed size).
The following are the parts of bugged code:


----------------------------------------------
A] heap overflow in the unpacking of CFF files
----------------------------------------------

>From cff.cpp:

bool CcffLoader::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
    ...
    f->readString(header.id, 16);
    header.version = f->readInt(1); header.size = f->readInt(2);
    header.packed = f->readInt(1); f->readString((char *)header.reserved, 12);
    if (memcmp(header.id,"""\x1A\xDE\xE0",16))
      { fp.close(f); return false; }

    unsigned char *module = new unsigned char [0x10000];

    // packed ?
    if (header.packed)
    {
        cff_unpacker *unpacker = new cff_unpacker;

        unsigned char *packed_module = new unsigned char [header.size + 4];

        memset(packed_module,0,header.size + 4);

        f->readString((char *)packed_module, header.size);
        fp.close(f);

        if (!unpacker->unpack(packed_module,module))
        ...


----------------------------------------------
B] heap overflow in the unpacking of MTK files
----------------------------------------------

>From mtk.cpp:

bool CmtkLoader::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
    ...
    // read header
    f->readString(header.id, 18);
    header.crc = f->readInt(2);
    header.size = f->readInt(2);

    // file validation section
if(strncmp(header.id,"mpu401tr\x92kk\xeer@data",18)) 
      { fp.close(f); return false; }

    // load section
    cmpsize = fp.filesize(f) - 22;
    cmp = new unsigned char[cmpsize];
    org = new unsigned char[header.size];
    for(i = 0; i < cmpsize; i++) cmp[i] = f->readInt(1);
    fp.close(f);

    while(cmpptr < cmpsize) {   // decompress
    ...


----------------------------------------------
C] heap overflow in the unpacking of DMO files
----------------------------------------------

>From dmo.cpp:

#define ARRAY_AS_WORD(a, i) ((a[i + 1] << 8) + a[i])
...
bool CdmoLoader::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
  ...
  // get file size
  long packed_length = fp.filesize(f);
  f->seek(0);

  unsigned char *packed_module = new unsigned char [packed_length];

  // load file
  f->readString((char *)packed_module, packed_length);
  fp.close(f);

  // decrypt
  unpacker->decrypt(packed_module,packed_length);

  long unpacked_length = 0x2000 * ARRAY_AS_WORD(packed_module, 12);
  unsigned char *module = new unsigned char [unpacked_length];

  // unpack
  if (!unpacker->unpack(packed_module+12,module))
  ...


-------------------------------
D] buffer-overflow in DTM files
-------------------------------

>From dtm.cpp:

bool CdtmLoader::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
    ...
    char bufstr[80];

    for (i=0;i<16;i++)
    {
        // get line length
        unsigned char bufstr_length = f->readInt(1);

        // read line
        if (bufstr_length)
        {
            f->readString(bufstr,bufstr_length);

            for (j=0;jFrom s3m.cpp:

bool Cs3mPlayer::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
  ...
  unsigned short    insptr[99],pattptr[99];
      ...
      f->seek(checkhead->ordnum, binio::Add);
      for(i = 0; i < checkhead->insnum; i++)
    insptr[i] = f->readInt(2);
      for(i=0;iinsnum;i++) {
    f->seek(insptr[i]*16);
    if(f->readInt(1) >= 2) {
      adlibins = true;
      break;
    }
      }
      delete checkhead;
      if(!adlibins) { fp.close(f); return false; }
    }

  // load section
  f->seek(0);   // rewind for load
  load_header(f, &header);          // read header
  for(i = 0; i < header.ordnum; i++) orders[i] = f->readInt(1); // read orders
  for(i = 0; i < header.insnum; i++) insptr[i] = f->readInt(2); // instrument parapointers
  for(i = 0; i < header.patnum; i++) pattptr[i] = f->readInt(2);    // pattern parapointers
  ...


----------------------------------------------
F] heap overflow in the unpacking of U6M files
----------------------------------------------

destination.size is set but not used so there is no check on the real
size of the output buffer.

>From u6m.cpp:

bool Cu6mPlayer::load(const std::string &filename, const CFileProvider &fp)
    ...
        unsigned char pseudo_header[6];
        f->readString((char *)pseudo_header, 6);
        decompressed_filesize = pseudo_header[0] + (pseudo_header[1] << 8);

        if (!( (pseudo_header[2]==0) && (pseudo_header[3]==0) &&
               (pseudo_header[4] + ((pseudo_header[5] & 0x1)<<8) == 0x100) &&
               (decompressed_filesize > (filesize-4)) ))
        {
        fp.close(f);
            return(false);
        }
    ...
    song_data = new unsigned char[decompressed_filesize];
    unsigned char* compressed_song_data = new unsigned char[filesize-4];

    f->seek(4);
    f->readString((char *)compressed_song_data, filesize - 4);
    fp.close(f);

    // attempt to decompress the song data
    // if unsuccessful, deallocate song_data[] on the spot, and return(false)
    data_block source, destination;
    source.size = filesize-4;
    source.data = compressed_song_data;
    destination.size = decompressed_filesize;
    destination.data = song_data;
    
    if (!lzw_decompress(source,destination))
    ...

==========3) The Code
==========

I have written a basic experimental proof-of-concept but for some
limitations (I don't know all the compression algorithms used) it
cannot test all the bugs.
Anyway it's not completed or optimized so please don't consider it a
real working code except for bugs 4 and 5.
