More information:

Steve Kemp discovered two vulnerabilities in gnump3d, a streaming server for MP3 and OGG files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following problems:

  • CVE-2005-3122

    The 404 error page does not strip malicious javascript content from the resulting page, which would be executed in the victims browser.

  • CVE-2005-3123

    By using specially crafting URLs it is possible to read arbitrary files to which the user of the streaming server has access to.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a gnump3d package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.3-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnump3d package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (sarge)
