Description

Multiple buffer overflows in Cscope before 15.7a allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via long strings in input such as (1) source-code tokens and (2) pathnames, related to integer overflows in some cases. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2004-2541.
