Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libcdaudio1 (MDKSA-2005:075)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18105


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


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. This same vulnerability is present in the libcdaudio1 code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.


Update the affected packages.
