Description Mark J. Cox 2005-06-01 14:08:44 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159290 +++

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 affects FC4 (as of FC4-re0530.1) and FC3

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-06-09 17:35:11 UTC

Has this update made it into FC4?

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2005-06-10 07:10:19 UTC
Update for FC4 is done (ID's 405).
