Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-272
Posted Dec 7, 2009
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009-272 - libmikmod 3.1.9 through 3.2.0, as used by MikMod, SDL-mixer, and possibly other products, relies on the channel count of the last loaded song, rather than the currently playing song, for certain playback calculations, which allows user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) by loading multiple songs (aka MOD files) with different numbers of channels. libmikmod 3.1.11 through 3.2.0, as used by MikMod and possibly other products, allows user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) by loading an XM file. This update fixes these vulnerabilities. Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for Corporate products.

Package : libmikmod

Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in libmikmod:

libmikmod 3.1.9 through 3.2.0, as used by MikMod, SDL-mixer, and
possibly other products, relies on the channel count of the last
loaded song, rather than the currently playing song, for certain
playback calculations, which allows user-assisted attackers to cause
a denial of service (application crash) by loading multiple songs
(aka MOD files) with different numbers of channels (CVE-2007-6720).

libmikmod 3.1.11 through 3.2.0, as used by MikMod and possibly other
products, allows user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) by loading an XM file (CVE-2009-0179).

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.

Update:

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.
