James Peach of Apple discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in cscope's handling of long file system paths. Processing a maliciously crafted source file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.

CVE-2009-0148 (
  Multiple buffer overflows in Cscope before 15.7a allow remote
  attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) long pathnames, (2) long
  source-code strings, and other vectors.
