+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #150712 +++

This issue was discovered by Dean Brettle

While investigating a crash of grip on my FC3 system, I've come across
what appears to be a long-standing remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
Specifically, if the CDDB server (eg freedb.org) returns more than 16
matches (exact or inexact) for a CD, grip will write past the end of a
stack-based array.  I think that means that a hostile server or a
hostile 3rd party submitter to the CDDB server could exploit the bug (by
embedding exploit code in the overflowing matches).

This issue should also affect FC2
