Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Updated mikmod packages that fix a security issue are now available.
This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.
MikMod is a well documented MOD music file player for UNIX-based systems.

mikmod could result in arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0427

Users of mikmod are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
