Description

Multiple array index errors in the Audible::Tag::readTag function in metadata/audible/audibletag.cpp in Amarok 1.4.10 through 2.0.1 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code via an Audible Audio (.aa) file with a crafted (1) nlen or (2) vlen Tag value, each of which can lead to an invalid pointer dereference, or the writing of a 0x00 byte to an arbitrary memory location, after an allocation failure.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
