Debian: New mpg123 packages fix arbitrary code execution

Carlos Barros has discovered a buffer overflow in the HTTP authentication routine of mpg123, a popular (but non-free) MPEG layer 1/2/3 audio player. If a user opened a malicious playlist or URL, an attacker might execute arbitrary code with the rights of the calling user. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
