Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : grip (MDKSA-2005:066)

High Nessus Plugin ID 17678


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


A buffer overflow bug was found by Joseph VanAndel in the way that grip handles data returned by CDDB servers. If a user connected to a malicious CDDB server, an attacker could execute arbitrary code on the user's machine.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.


Update the affected grip package.
