User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu Luigi Auriemma discovered multiple buffer overflows in libmusicbrainz. When a user made queries to MusicBrainz servers, it was possible for malicious servers, or man-in-the-middle systems posing as servers, to send a crafted reply to the client request and remotely gain access to the user's system with the user's privileges.
