MDKSA-2006:157: musicbrainz Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the musicbrainz package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:157 (musicbrainz).

Multiple buffer overflows in libmusicbrainz (aka mb_client or
MusicBrainz Client Library) 2.1.2 and earlier, and SVN 8406 and
earlier, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
or execute arbitrary code via (1) a long Location header by the HTTP
server, which triggers an overflow in the MBHttp::Download function in
and (2) a long URL in RDF data, as demonstrated by a URL
in an rdf:resource field in an RDF XML document, which triggers
overflows in many functions in lib/rdfparse.c.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
