Synopsis
=======
Two vulnerabilities have been found in GNU cpio, the worst of which
could result in execution of arbitrary code.

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

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-arch/cpio               < 2.11-r3                 >= 2.11-r3

Description
==========
Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNU cpio:

* The list_file function in GNU cpio contains a heap-based buffer
  overflow vulnerability (CVE-2014-9112)
* A directory traversal vulnerability has been found in GNU cpio
  (CVE-2015-1197)

Impact
=====
A remote attacker may be able to entice a user to open a specially
crafted archive using GNU cpio, possibly resulting in execution of
arbitrary code, a Denial of Service condition, or overwriting arbitrary
files.

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-2.11-r3"
