Date: March 16, 2006
Bug(s): #125622
ID: 200603-12

Synopsis


A buffer overflow in zoo may be exploited to execute arbitrary when
creating archives of specially crafted directories and files.


Background


zoo is a file archiving utility for maintaining collections of
files, written by Rahul Dhesi.


Affected Packages

Package: app-arch/zoo
Vulnerable: < 2.10-r2

Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


zoo is vulnerable to a new buffer overflow due to insecure use of
the strcpy() function when trying to create an archive from certain
directories or filenames.


Impact


An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a user to create
a zoo archive of specially crafted directories and filenames, possibly
leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running zoo.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All zoo users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-arch/zoo-2.10-r2"
