<title>mpg321: Format string vulnerability</title>
A flaw in the processing of ID3 tags in mpg321 could potentially lead to
the execution of arbitrary code.

<package name="media-sound/mpg321" auto="yes" arch="*">

mpg321 is a GPL replacement for mpg123, a command line audio
player with support for ID3. ID3 is a tagging system that allows
metadata to be embedded within media files.
A routine security audit of the mpg321 package revealed a known
security issue remained unpatched. The vulnerability is a result of
mpg321 printing embedded ID3 data to the console in an unsafe manner.
<impact type="normal">
Successful exploitation would require a victim to play a specially
crafted audio file using mpg321, potentially resulting in the execution
of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All mpg321 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/mpg321-0.2.10-r2&quot;</code>
