Subject: [PATCH] Fix a heap-buffer-overflow in find_archive()
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

rw_buffer has allocated rw_base_size bytes. But subsequend fgets() in
find_archive() reads up-to BUFSIZ bytes.

On my system, BUFSIZ is 8192. rw_base_size is usually equaled to
a memory page size, 4096 on my system. Thus find_archive() can write
beyonded allocated memmory for rw_buffer array:
