Debian Security Advisory DSA 564-1 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : mpg123
Vulnerability : missing user input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0805
License : non-free

Davide Del Vecchio discovered a vulnerability 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 allow arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges 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.
