|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Cscope: Many buffer overflows (GLSA 200606-10)
Date: June 11, 2006
Cscope is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
Cscope is a developer's tool for browsing source code.
Vulnerable: < 15.5-r6
Unaffected: >= 15.5-r6
Architectures: All supported architectures
Cscope does not verify the length of file names sourced in #include statements.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Cscope users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-util/cscope-15.5-r6"
