Bartlomiej Sieka discovered that mpg123 contains an unsafe
strcat() to an array in playlist.c. This code vulnerability may lead to
a buffer overflow.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could craft a malicious playlist which, when
used, would result in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights
of the user running mpg123.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All mpg123 users should upgrade to the latest version:
