libmikmod '.XM' File Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

The 'libmikmod' library is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Attackers can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting victim to open a specially crafted '.XM' file.

Successfully exploiting this issue will cause an affected application to crash, denying service to legitimate users. Attackers may also be able to run arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.

This issue affects libmikmod 3.1.9 through 3.2.0; other versions or applications that use the library may also be affected.
