(Grip: CDDB response overflow)
Joseph VanAndel has discovered a buffer overflow in Grip when
processing large CDDB results.
A malicious CDDB server could cause Grip to crash by returning
more then 16 matches, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application.
Disable automatic CDDB queries, but we highly encourage users to
upgrade to 3.3.0.

All Grip users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/grip-3.3.0'
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
