PACKAGE   : mpg123

DESCRIPTION
 mpg123[1] is a command line mp3 player.
 
 Vade 79 reported[2] a buffer overflow vulnerability[3] in the mpg123
 package. When used to play mp3 audio streams over the network, audio
 servers can exploit this vulnerability by sending a carefully crafted
 response to the client which will overflow a buffer on the heap and
 execute arbitrary code.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all mpg123 users upgrade their packages.
