|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Grip: CDDB response overflow (GLSA 200503-21)
Date: March 17, 2005
Grip contains a buffer overflow that can be triggered by a large CDDB
response, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
Grip is a GTK+ based audio CD player/ripper.
Vulnerable: < 3.3.0
Unaffected: >= 3.3.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Joseph VanAndel has discovered a buffer overflow in Grip when
processing large CDDB results.
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.
Disable automatic CDDB queries, but we highly encourage users to
upgrade to 3.3.0.
All Grip users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/grip-3.3.0"
