MDKSA-2005:237: cpio Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the cpio package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:237 (cpio).

A buffer overflow in cpio 2.6 on 64-bit platforms could allow a local user to
create a DoS (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code when creating a cpio
archive with a file whose size is represented by more than 8 digits. The
updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
