    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.
