Description Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2008-11-10 05:52:44 UTC
From: Eric Sesterhenn: Fix a stack corruption caused by a corrupted hfs filesystem.  If the catalog name length is corrupted the memcpy overwrites the catalog btree structure.  Since the field is limited to HFS_NAMELEN bytes in the
structure and the file format, we throw an error if it is too long.
