Severity: Medium Date : 2018-07-26 CVE-ID : CVE-2017-17440 Package : libextractor Type : denial of service Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-541
The package libextractor before version 1.7-1 is vulnerable to denial of service.
Upgrade to 1.7-1.
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.7.
GNU Libextractor 1.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted GIF, IT (Impulse Tracker), NSFE, S3M (Scream Tracker 3), SID, or XM (eXtended Module) file, as demonstrated by the EXTRACTOR_xm_extract_method function in plugins/xm_extractor.c.
A remote attacker is able to crash the application via a specially crafted file.
