CAN-2003-0427 mikmod flaw
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:18 EST
Back in June 2003, the Debian package owner for mikmod found a security flaw.
Unfortunately it doesn't look like this got shared with vendors (I see nothing
in vendor-sec archives), and we didn't update for this minor flaw.
An attacker could create a malicious archive and if you can convince a victim to
open that archive using mikmod you could overflow a buffer and execute code.
Fix from Gentoo CVS:
This issue also affects RHEL3, RHEL2.1
