Description

Multiple issues have been identified in cpio, including a buffer overflow and multiple NULL pointer dereference, resulting at least in a denial of service and possibly also in an unwanted code execution.

This has been fixed in Debian 6 Squeeze with version 2.11-4+deb6u1 by applying the upstream patches.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
