Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libmikmod (MDVSA-2009:272-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

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 provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
customers

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
