Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

It was discovered that libmodplug did not correctly handle certain
malformed S3M media files. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted S3M file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2011-1574)

It was discovered that libmodplug did not correctly handle certain
malformed ABC media files. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted ABC file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2011-1761)

The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.

Solution :

Update the affected libmodplug0c2 and / or libmodplug1 packages.
