Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-411-1 mpg321

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A vulnerability was discovered in mpg321, a command-line mp3 player,
whereby user-supplied strings were passed to printf(3) unsafely. This
vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to overwrite
memory, and possibly execute arbitrary code. In order for this
vulnerability to be exploited, mpg321 would need to play a malicious
mp3 file (including via HTTP streaming).
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.2.10.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.10.3.
We recommend that you update your mpg321 package.
