mpg123 is a MPEG Audio Player.
Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the getauthfromURL() and http_open()
functions have been reported by Carlos Barros. Additionally, the Gentoo
Linux Sound Team fixed additional boundary checks which were found to
be lacking.
<impact type="normal">
By enticing a user to open a malicious playlist or URL or making use of
a specially-crafted symlink, an attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running mpg123.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All mpg123 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/mpg123-0.59s-r5&quot;</code>
