Debian: New mt-daapd packages fix several vulnerabilities

Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the mt-daapd DAAP audio server (also known as the Firefly Media Server). Insufficient validation and bounds checking of the Authorization: HTTP header enables a heap buffer overflow, potentially enabling the execution of arbitrary code. Format string vulnerabilities in debug logging within the authentication of XML-RPC requests could enable the execution of arbitrary code. An integer overflow weakness in the handling of HTTP POST variables could allow a heap buffer overflow and potentially arbitrary code execution. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Debian Bug     : 459961 476241

Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the mt-daapd DAAP audio
server (also known as the Firefly Media Server).  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following three
problems:

CVE-2007-5824

   Insufficient validation and bounds checking of the Authorization:
   HTTP header enables a heap buffer overflow, potentially enabling
   the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2007-5825

   Format string vulnerabilities in debug logging within the
   authentication of XML-RPC requests could enable the execution of
   arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-1771

   An integer overflow weakness in the handling of HTTP POST
   variables could allow a heap buffer overflow and potentially
   arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.2.4+r1376-1.1+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9~r1696-1.3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mt-daapd package.
