           Summary: Mpg123 Security Vulnerability
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.mpg123.de/
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P1
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: randy at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

The maintainer's site for the Mpg123 package says that you should *not*
use the source code we show in the BLFS book.

There may be a fix (patches) on the Debian or Gentoo sites, though I did
not check into this.

For the time being we need to decide if perhaps commenting out this 
package from the multimedia section in BLFS might not be the best plan.
