Davide Del Vecchio has reported a vulnerability in mpg123, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the "do_layer2()" function in the Mpeg layer-2 audio decoder. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted mpeg audio file.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user executing mpg123.
The vulnerability has been reported in version 0.59r. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 0.65.
