Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-14

pan and pitch of the instruments referenced in a ".it" (Impulse
Tracker) file with a large number of nodes.

attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
the application that uses a vulnerable DUMB library.
