Risk 4 : Red Hat Local Checks

Updated mikmod packages that fix a security issue are now available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

MikMod is a well known MOD music file player for UNIX-based systems.

A buffer overflow bug was found in mikmod during the processing of archive filenames. An attacker could create a malicious archive that when opened by mikmod could result in arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0427 to this issue.

Users of mikmod are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
