Michael Kaempf reported a security problem in slocate (a secure version
of locate, a tool to quickly locate files on a filesystem) on bugtraq
which was originally discovered by zorgon. He discovered that there
was a bug in the database reading code which made it overwrite an
internal structure with some input. He then showed this could be
exploited to trick slocate into executing arbitrary code by pointing it
to a carefully crafted database.
