<p>
zoo is a file archiving utility for maintaining collections of
files, written by Rahul Dhesi.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
zoo is vulnerable to a new buffer overflow due to insecure use of
the strcpy() function when trying to create an archive from certain
directories or filenames.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a user to create
a zoo archive of specially crafted directories and filenames, possibly
leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running zoo.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All zoo users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-arch/zoo-2.10-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
