Hi Cedric,

Isn't that a duplicate of CVE-2015-1197?

Comment 7 Salvatore Bonaccorso 2018-02-18 16:45:20 EST
Sorry to be more specific, there are references in the MITRE entry at https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-1197 . 


Was posted on the cpio bug list, but I think it never got a reply. Several distributions seem to have then applied the patch from SuSE (at least in Debian, SUSE, Ubuntu, Mageia).
