Debian Security Advisory DSA-1166-2 Steve Kemp October 13, 2006

Package : cheesetracker (0.9.9-1sarge1)
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-3814
BugTraq ID : 20060723
Debian Bug : 380364

This update to DSA-1166 adds the architectures which were missing from the previous advisory.

Luigi Auriemma discovered a buffer overflow in the loading component of cheesetracker, a sound module tracking program, which could allow a maliciously constructed input file to execute arbitary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.9-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.9-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your cheesetracker package.
