An integer overflow flaw, leading to heap-based buffer overflow was found
in the routine reading samples of music files used by the Modplug mod music
file format library (libmodplug). An attacker could create a specially-crafted
Advanced Module Format Music (AMF) file, that could cause an application utilizing the libmodplug library to crash, or, to potentially execute arbitrary
code as the user running the application, when opened by the victim.
