A vulnerability has been found and corrected in mpg123:

Integer signedness error in the store_id3_text function in the ID3v2 code in mpg123 before 1.7.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds memory access) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an ID3 tag with a negative encoding value. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information (CVE-2009-1301).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
