Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Davide Del Vecchio discovered a vulnerability in mpg123, a popular (but
non-free) MPEG layer 1/2/3 audio player. A malicious MPEG layer 2/3
file could cause the header checks in mpg123 to fail, which could in
turn allow arbitrary code to be executed with the rights of the
user running mpg123.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.59r-13woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your mpg123 package.
