Description

Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in mpg123, an MPEG layer 1/2/3 audio decoder and player. An attacker could take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial of service against mpg123 or applications using the libmpg123 library with a carefully crafted input file.

CVE-2014-9497

Myautsai PAN discovered a flaw in the decoder initialization code of libmpg123. A specially crafted mp3 input file can be used to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service.

CVE-2016-1000247

Jerold Hoong discovered a flaw in the id3 tag processing code of libmpg123. A specially crafted mp3 input file could be used to cause a buffer over-read, resulting in a denial of service.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.14.4-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mpg123 packages.
