Package        : mpg123
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1655
BugTraq ID     : 17365
Debian Bug     : 361863

A. Alejandro Hern�ndez discovered a vulnerability in mpg123, a
command-line player for MPEG audio files. Insufficient validation of
MPEG 2.0 layer 3 files results in several buffer overflows.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.59r-20sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.59r-22.

We recommend that you upgrade your mpg123 packages.
