<package name="media-libs/libcdaudio" auto="yes" arch="*">

<vulnerable range="lt">0.99.12-r1</vulnerable>
libcdaudio is a library of CD audio related routines.
A heap-based buffer overflow has been reported in the
cddb_read_disc_data() function in cddb.c when processing overly long
CDDB data.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious CDDB
server, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libcdaudio users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/libcdaudio-0.99.12-r1&quot;</code>
