Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in libmodplug: Integer overflow in the CSoundFile::ReadMed function (src/load_med.cpp) in libmodplug before 0.8.6, as used in gstreamer-plugins and other products, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a MED file with a crafted (1) song comment or (2) song name, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1438). Buffer overflow in the PATinst function in src/load_pat.cpp in libmodplug before 0.8.7 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long instrument name (CVE-2009-1513). The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

 Package : libmodplug
 Date    : June 4, 2009
 Affected: 2008.1, 2009.0, 2009.1
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed
 in libmodplug:
 
 Integer overflow in the CSoundFile::ReadMed function (src/load_med.cpp)
 in libmodplug before 0.8.6, as used in gstreamer-plugins and other
 products, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary
 code via a MED file with a crafted (1) song comment or (2) song name,
 which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1438).
 
 Buffer overflow in the PATinst function in src/load_pat.cpp in
 libmodplug before 0.8.7 allows user-assisted remote attackers to
 cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
 long instrument name (CVE-2009-1513).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
