Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA564] DSA-564-1 mpg123

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-564-1 mpg123

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Davide Del Vecchio discovered a vulnerability in mpg123, a popular (but
non-free) MPEG layer 1/2/3 audio player. A malicious MPEG layer 2/3
file could cause the header checks in mpg123 to fail, which could in
turn permit arbitrary code to be executed with the rights of the
user running mpg123.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.59r-13woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.59r-16.
We recommend that you upgrade your mpg123 package.
