Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-02-27 08:25:37 UTC
From ${URL} :

It was reported [1] that ARJ crashes on a crafted ARJ file:

This is actually a security issue, as the invalid pointer in that
free is due to a buffer overflow write access initiated by a size
read from the processed archive.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

CVE-2015-2782 (
  Buffer overflow in Open-source ARJ archiver 3.10.22 allows remote attackers
  to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via
  a crafted ARJ archive.

We have 3.10.22-r5 in tree undergoing stabilization as part of Bug # 535708, is this vulnerability handled by the same build?
Comment 3 Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2016-07-31 18:49:00 UTC
This is fixed in Debian's 3.10.22-13, which is the version used by our arj-3.10.22-r5 and later. So, I believe this is fixed in the tree already. The older versions are gone, too.
Comment 4 Thomas Deutschmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-11-28 01:05:52 UTC
Like said in comment #3 we already have a fixed version in tree which went stable via bug 535708. No vulnerable version left so all done.

New GLSA created.
