(CVE-2009-1438)

Manfred Tremmel and Stanislav Brabec discovered that libmodplug did not
correctly handle long instrument names when parsing PAT sample files. If a
user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PAT file, an
attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with
privileges of the user invoking the program. This issue only affected
Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-1513)
