    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.

    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.

    Debian 3.1 (stable)
    - -------------------
    
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
    
    mips architecture (MIPS (Big Endian))
    
      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/c/cheesetracker/cheesetracker_0.9.9-1sarge1_mips.deb
