Package        : libcdaudio
Vulnerability  : heap overflow
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-5030

It was discovered that a heap overflow in the CDDB retrieval code of 
libcdaudio, a library for controlling a CD-ROM when playing audio CDs,
may result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.99.12p2-2+etch1. A package for hppa will be provided later.

For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable
distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.99.12p2-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your libcdaudio packages.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
