Synopsis:          Moderate: grip security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:304-01

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

A new grip package is available that fixes a remote buffer overflow.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

Grip is a GTK+ based front-end for CD rippers (such as cdparanoia and
cdda2wav) and Ogg Vorbis encoders.

Dean Brettle discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way grip handles data
returned by CDDB servers.  It is possible that if a user connects to a
malicious CDDB server, an attacker could execute arbitrary code on the
victim's machine.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0706 to this issue.

Users of grip should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
