Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2012-07-20 16:31:09 UTC
CVE-2012-4025 (
  Integer overflow in the queue_init function in unsquashfs.c in unsquashfs in
  Squashfs 4.2 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
  via a crafted block_log field in the superblock of a .sqsh file, leading to
  a heap-based buffer overflow.

CVE-2012-4024 (
  Stack-based buffer overflow in the get_component function in unsquashfs.c in
  unsquashfs in Squashfs 4.2 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute
  arbitrary code via a crafted list file (aka a crafted file for the -ef
  option).  NOTE: probably in most cases, the list file is a trusted file
  constructed by the program's user; however, there are some realistic
  situations in which a list file would be obtained from an untrusted remote

I don't know how glsamaker does its job, but there is definitely no progress yet.

I have put a snapshot in the tree but I since it has a lot more changes than just the ones we want, maybe it's not ready to go stable quite yet.
Comment 4 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-03-06 06:53:03 UTC
4.3 is in the tree since June 2014 and is being marked stable in bug #542226.
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2016-06-17 15:06:26 UTC
afaict, this is fixed in the 4.3 release which is already stable
