<background>
<p>
libcdio is a library for accessing CD-ROM and CD images.
</p>

<description>
<p>
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.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
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.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All libcdio users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-libs/libcdio-0.78.2-r4&quot;</code>
</resolution>
