RHSA-2005-304: grip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the grip packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


A new grip package is available that fixes a remote buffer overflow.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat
Security Response Team.

Grip is a GTK+ based front-end for CD rippers (such as cdparanoia and
cdda2wav) and Ogg Vorbis encoders.

Dean Brettle discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way grip handles data
returned by CDDB servers. It is possible that if a user connects to a
malicious CDDB server, a possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on the
victim's machine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0706 to this issue.

Users of grip should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
