zoo is a file archiving utility for maintaining collections of
files, written by Rahul Dhesi.
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.
<impact type="normal">
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All zoo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-arch/zoo-2.10-r2&quot;</code>
