Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:075 (libcdaudio1).



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,
a possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on the user's machine. This same
vulnerability is present in the libcdaudio1 code.
