mpg123 find_next_file function buffer overflow
|mpg123-findnextfile-bo (18626)||High Risk|
mpg123 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking in the find_next_file function in the 'playlist.c' file. By sending a specially-crafted MP3 playlist, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the user, once the playlist is processed.
For Gentoo Linux:
Upgrade to the latest version of mpg123 (0.59s-r8 or later), as listed in GLSA 200412-22. See References.
