    Package        : mpg123
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0982
    
    Carlos Barros has discovered a buffer overflow in the HTTP
    authentication routine of mpg123, a popular (but non-free) MPEG layer
    1/2/3 audio player.  If a user opened a malicious playlist or URL, an
    attacker might execute arbitrary code with the rights of the calling
    user.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.59r-13woody4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.59r-17.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mpg123 package.
