Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:001
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libmodplug
Date : January 2, 2007
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple buffer overflows in MODPlug Tracker (OpenMPT) 1.17.02.43 and
earlier and libmodplug 0.8 and earlier allow user-assisted remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) long strings in ITP files
used by the CSoundFile::ReadITProject function in soundlib/Load_it.cpp
and (2) crafted modules used by the CSoundFile::ReadSample function in
soundlib/Sndfile.cpp, as demonstrated by crafted AMF files.

Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
