    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.
