Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local

This update to DSA-1166 adds the architectures which were missing from
the previous advisory.

Luigi Auriemma discovered a buffer overflow in the loading component
of cheesetracker, a sound module tracking program, which could allow a
maliciously constructed input file to execute arbitary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your cheesetracker package.
