Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Cscope: Many buffer overflows (GLSA 200606-10)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 11, 2006
Bug(s): #133829
ID: 200606-10

Synopsis

Cscope is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Cscope is a developer's tool for browsing source code.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-util/cscope
Vulnerable: < 15.5-r6
Unaffected: >= 15.5-r6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Cscope does not verify the length of file names sourced in #include statements.

Impact

A user could be enticed to source a carefully crafted file which will allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Cscope.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Cscope users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-util/cscope-15.5-r6"


References

CVE-2004-2541
