(1) Buffer Overflow Vulnerability / ~ Deprecated & Insecure Function
use (Missing Bounds-checks)

Software Overview:
The DC3DD software is a patched version of the GNU version of the
popular UNIX imaging tool â??ddâ?? , with
additional functionality, for use by forensic investigations experts.
DC3DD is a popular package default to a number of popular Linux
distributions. DC3DD was developed at the US Department
of Defense, DC3 in February, 2008 and authored by Jesse Kornblum.

The permission set illustrates that the software is owned by the
superuser, however executable by all users.
static void
report_command_line(int argc, char* const* argv)
// Report compiled-in options.
fputs(_("compiled options:"), stderr);
report_compile_flags(stderr, false);
for (log_t* log = job_logs; log; log = log->next_log) {
fputs(_("compiled options:"), log->file);
report_compile_flags(log->file, false);
for (log_t* log = hash_logs; log; log = log->next_log) {
fputs(_("compiled options:"), log->file);
report_compile_flags(log->file, false);
// Report the command line.
char* command_line = make_cmd_line_string(argc, argv);
sprintf(message, _("command line: %s\n"), command_line);
report(message, ALL_LOGS);
Unsafe use of the sprintf() function, has been triggered which can
facilitate a buffer overflow condition.
Therefore, in the aforementioned experiment a char* type is written
onto a fixed length destination buffer;
No manual bounds checks are provided, to ensure that user-input does
not exceed in size, and therefore
would not overwrite the destination buffer.
