Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Grip: CDDB response overflow (GLSA 200503-21)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 17, 2005
Bug(s): #84704
ID: 200503-21

Synopsis


Grip contains a buffer overflow that can be triggered by a large CDDB
response, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.


Background


Grip is a GTK+ based audio CD player/ripper.


Affected Packages

Package: media-sound/grip
Vulnerable: < 3.3.0
Unaffected: >= 3.3.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Joseph VanAndel has discovered a buffer overflow in Grip when
processing large CDDB results.


Impact


A malicious CDDB server could cause Grip to crash by returning
more then 16 matches, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application.


Workaround


Disable automatic CDDB queries, but we highly encourage users to
upgrade to 3.3.0.


Resolution


All Grip users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/grip-3.3.0"
