Description


Wouter Coekaerts has reported a vulnerability in XMMS Remote Control Script, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

The vulnerability is caused due to XMMS Remote Control Script not correctly filtering id3 tags before sending them to XChat. This can be exploited to e.g. send arbitrary commands to a server by tricking a user into playing and announcing a specially crafted MP3 file.

The vulnerability is reported in version 1.07. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Do not play and announce untrusted audio files. Use another product.
