Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-24 03:50:32 UTC
According to a posting to the oss-security mailing list,, this integer overflow could be exploited by a local attacker to execute arbitrary code. There appear to be two relevant upstream commits at:

I believe these are fixed in app-crypt/ccid-1.4.1-r1, which is already in the tree. So unless @crypto objects, we will stabilize that.

Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 hppa ppc ppc64 x86"
Comment 1 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-25 07:29:07 UTC
Reverting stabilization request. 

@crypto, please let us know if this can go stable. Thanks!

Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 hppa ppc ppc64 x86"

This must be stabilized with:

sys-apps/pcsc-lite-1.6.6 in bug 349561
dev-libs/opensc-0.11.13-r2 in bug 349567
net-misc/rdesktop-1.6.0-r4 in bug 349835
Comment 3 Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-29 10:35:24 UTC
amd64 done
Comment 4 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-29 14:26:56 UTC
Stable for HPPA PPC.
Comment 5 Thomas Kahle (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-29 17:40:43 UTC
x86 done.

ppc64 stable, last arch done
Comment 7 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-01-10 18:25:48 UTC
Thanks, folks. GLSA request filed.
Comment 8 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2011-01-21 11:16:23 UTC
CVE-2010-4530 (
  Signedness error in ccid_serial.c in libccid in the USB Chip/Smart
  Card Interface Devices (CCID) driver, as used in pcscd in PCSC-Lite
  1.5.3 and possibly other products, allows physically proximate
  attackers to execute arbitrary code via a smart card with a crafted
  serial number that causes a negative value to be used in a memcpy
  operation, which triggers a buffer overflow.  NOTE: some sources
  refer to this issue as an integer overflow.

Comment 9 Alon Bar-Lev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-12-15 23:48:38 UTC
security: is there any reason why this still opened?
