Description

Multiple integer overflows in the Audible::Tag::readTag function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp in Amarok 1.4.10 through 2.0.1 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an Audible Audio (.aa) file with a large (1) nlen or (2) vlen Tag value, each of which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
