Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200504-07] GnomeVFS, libcdaudio: CDDB response overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
GnomeVFS, libcdaudio: CDDB response overflow

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-07
(GnomeVFS, libcdaudio: CDDB response overflow)


Joseph VanAndel has discovered a buffer overflow in Grip when
processing large CDDB results (see GLSA 200503-21). The same overflow
is present in GnomeVFS and libcdaudio code.

Impact

A malicious CDDB server could cause applications making use of GnomeVFS
or libcdaudio libraries to crash, potentially permiting the execution of
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
