Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-13
(Audacious: Multiple heap and buffer overflows)
Luigi Auriemma has found that the adplug library fails to verify the
size of the destination buffers in the unpacking instructions,
resulting in various possible heap and buffer overflows.
A possible hacker can entice a user to load a specially crafted media file,
resulting in a crash or possible execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
