Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libcdaudio (MDVSA-2008:233-1)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36292
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA heap overflow was found in the CDDB retrieval code of libcdaudio, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2008-5030).
In addition, the fixes for CVE-2005-0706 were not applied to newer libcdaudio packages as shipped with Mandriva Linux, so the patch to fix that issue has been applied to 2008.1 and 2009.0 (this was originally fixed in MDKSA-2005:075). This issue is a buffer overflow flaw found by Joseph VanAndel. Corporate 3.0 has this fix already applied.
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
