Synopsis
=======
The adplug library included in Audacious is vulnerable to various
overflows that could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
Audacious is a media player that has been forked from Beep Media
Player.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /  Vulnerable  /                Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-sound/audacious       < 1.1.0                      >= 1.1.0

Description
==========
Luigi Auriemma has found that the adplug library fails to verify the
size of the destination buffers in the unpacking instructions,
resulting in various possible heap and buffer overflows.

Impact
=====
An attacker can entice a user to load a specially crafted media file,
resulting in a crash or possible execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All Audacious users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/audacious-1.1.0"
