A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way xmp, the extended module player, a modplayer for Unix-like systems that plays over 90 mainstream and obscure module formats, loaded certain Music And Sound Interface (MASI) files. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted MASI media file that, when opened, would lead to xmp binary crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the xmp executable.
Relevant upstream patch:
This issue affects the versions of the xmp package, as shipped with Fedora release of 17 and 18. Please schedule an update.
