Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201502-11 (GNU cpio: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNU cpio:
  The list_file function in GNU cpio contains a heap-based buffer         overflow vulnerability (CVE-2014-9112)       A directory traversal vulnerability has been found in GNU cpio         (CVE-2015-1197)   Impact :

A remote attacker may be able to entice a user to open a specially       crafted archive using GNU cpio, possibly resulting in execution of       arbitrary code, a Denial of Service condition, or overwriting arbitrary       files.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
