Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: mpg123
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:120
Date: November 1st, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Carlos Barros discovered two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in mpg123; the first in the getauthfromURL() function and the second in the http_open() function. These vulnerabilities could be exploited to possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running mpg123.

The provided packages are patched to fix these issues, as well additional boundary checks that were lacking have been included (thanks to the Gentoo Linux Sound Team for these additional fixes).
