Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in libcdio.

Background
==========

libcdio is a library for accessing CD-ROM and CD images.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/libcdio lt; 0.78.2-r4 gt;= 0.78.2-r4

Description
===========

Devon Miller reported a boundary error in the "print_iso9660_recurse()"
function in files cd-info.c and iso-info.c when processing long
filenames within Joliet images.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted ISO
image in the cd-info and iso-info applications, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application. Applications linking against shared libraries of libcdio
are not affected.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libcdio users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "gt;=dev-libs/libcdio-0.78.2-r4"

References
==========
