    Several vulnerabilities that can lead to the execution of arbitrary code
    have been discovered in libmodplug, a library for mod music based on
    ModPlug.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following issues:
    
    CVE-2011-1761
    
        epiphant discovered that the abc file parser is vulnerable to several
        stack-based buffer overflows that potentially lead to the execution
        of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-2911
    
        Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadWav
        function is vulnerable to an integer overflow which leads to a
        heap-based buffer overflow.  An attacker can exploit this flaw to
        potentially execute arbitrary code by tricking a victim into opening
        crafted WAV files.
    
    CVE-2011-2912
    
        Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadS3M
        function is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow.  An attacker
        can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code by
        tricking a victim into opening crafted S3M files.
    
    CVE-2011-2913
    
        Hossein Lotfi of Secunia discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadAMS
        function suffers from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to 
        memory corruption.  An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially
        execute arbitrary code by tricking a victim into opening crafted AMS
        files.
    
    CVE-2011-2914
    
        It was discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadDSM function suffers
        from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to memory corruption.
        An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary
        code by tricking a victim into opening crafted DSM files.
    
    CVE-2011-2915
    
        It was discovered that the CSoundFile::ReadAMS2 function suffers
        from an off-by-one vulnerability that leads to memory corruption.
        An attacker can exploit this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary
        code by tricking a victim into opening crafted AMS files.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:0.8.8.1-1+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
    has been fixed in version 1:0.8.8.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libmodplug packages.
