Description Mark J. Cox 2005-06-01 14:07:14 UTC
Back in June 2003, the Debian package owner for mikmod found a security flaw. 
Unfortunately it doesn't look like this got shared with vendors (I see nothing
in vendor-sec archives), and we didn't update for this minor flaw.  

An attacker could create a malicious archive and if you can convince a victim to
open that archive using mikmod you could overflow a buffer and execute code.

Fix from Gentoo CVS:*checkout*/media-sound/mikmod/files/mikmod-3.1.6-security.patch?rev=1.1&content-type=text/plain
