The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
A new grip package is available that fixes a remote buffer overflow.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Grip is a GTK+ based front-end for CD rippers (such as cdparanoia and
cdda2wav) and Ogg Vorbis encoders.
Dean Brettle discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way grip handles
data returned by CDDB servers. It is possible that if a user connects
to a malicious CDDB server, an attacker could execute arbitrary code
on the victim's machine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0706 to this
Users of grip should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
