MDKSA-2007:001: libmodplug Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libmodplug package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:001 (libmodplug).
Multiple buffer overflows in MODPlug Tracker (OpenMPT) 1.17.02.43 and
earlier and libmodplug 0.8 and earlier allow user-assisted remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) long strings in ITP files
used by the CSoundFile::ReadITProject function in soundlib/Load_it.cpp
and (2) crafted modules used by the CSoundFile::ReadSample function in
soundlib/Sndfile.cpp, as demonstrated by crafted AMF files.
Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
