Subject: mmsclient: CVE request


Harald van Dijk reported a buffer overflow in mmsclient in client.c to
Gentoo security (

Line 28: #define BUF_SIZE 102400
Line 470: char data[1024];
Line 551: len = read (s, data, BUF_SIZE) ;

In a different Gentoo bug about the issue
(, Florian Streibelt noticed:

the reason for all this is in client.c:

31  #define BUF_SIZE 102400
473   char                 data[1024];
575   len = read (s, data, BUF_SIZE) ;
586   len = read (s, data, BUF_SIZE) ;

There might lurk more overflows in the (non-maintained) code.
Can I get a CVE for the issue?
