Synopsis
========

GNU cpio contains a buffer overflow vulnerability, possibly resulting
in a Denial of Service.

Background
==========

GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-arch/cpio < 2.9-r1 >= 2.9-r1

Description
===========

A buffer overflow vulnerability in the safer_name_suffix() function in
GNU cpio has been discovered.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
archive file resulting in a stack-based buffer overflow, possibly
crashing the application. It is disputed whether the execution of
arbitrary code is possible.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GNU cpio users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-arch/cpio-2.9-r1"
