Package : libcdaudio
Vulnerability : heap overflow
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-5030

It was discovered that a heap overflow in the CDDB retrieval code of
libcdaudio, a library for controlling a CD-ROM when playing audio CDs,
may result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.99.12p2-2+etch1. A package for hppa will be provided later.

For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable
distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.99.12p2-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcdaudio packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------
