    Package        : mpg123
    Vulnerability  : heap overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0865
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in mpg123, a command-line mp3 player,
    whereby a response from a remote HTTP server could overflow a buffer
    allocated on the heap, potentially permitting execution of arbitrary
    code with the privileges of the user invoking mpg123.  In order for
    this vulnerability to be exploited, mpg321 would need to request an
    mp3 stream from a malicious remote server via HTTP.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.59r-13woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.59r-15.
    
    We recommend that you update your mpg123 package.
