Description Josh Bressers 2006-02-28 18:21:44 EST
A buffer overflow bug exists in zoo which is triggered during archive creation.
 This issue is borderline a bug as it's really only a problem if someone is
creating a zoo archive on a directory full of files controlled by a local attacker.

Here is how to reproduce this issue:

mkdir `perl -e 'print "A"x254'`
cd `perl -e 'print "A"x254'`
mkdir `perl -e 'print "A"x254'`
cd `perl -e 'print "A"x254'`
touch feh
cd ../..
zoo a arch.zoo `perl -e 'print "A"x254 . "/" . "A"x254 . "/feh"'`

To fix this issue, in parse.c, line 42, Change the line:

strcpy (tempname, fname);


strncpy(tempname, fname, LFNAMESIZE);

Please note that there are probably countless other issues similar to this in
zoo.  I've not looked for any of them.

This is a dupe of #183109
I take it you prefer your fix to the one proposed there ? (just making sure)

These are two different issues.
Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-03-04 08:33:45 EST
I couldn't reproduce it with the current fe zoo
I'm pushing a new fe zoo (zoo-2.10-7) using the opensuse package as base (seems
a bit cleaner than ours) and your fix
Please check the result is ok with you

I no longer see this behavior in the latest update from -devel (zoo-2.10-8.fc5)

If you've not done so, you may want to alert the other distributions and
upstream about this issue (I'm not sure if there is still an upstream though).
