GLSA-200801-08 : libcdio: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200801-08
(libcdio: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

Devon Miller reported a boundary error in the 'print_iso9660_recurse()'
function in files cd-info.c and iso-info.c when processing long
filenames within Joliet images.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted ISO
image in the cd-info and iso-info applications, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application. Applications linking against shared libraries of libcdio
are not affected.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All libcdio users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/libcdio-0.78.2-r4'

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
