libmad is a high-quality MPEG audio decoder capable of 24-bit output.

Affected version:

Vulnerability Description:
the mad_decoder_run function in decoder.c in libmad 0.15.1b can cause a denial of service(memory corruption) via a crafted mp3 file.

I found this bug when I test mpg321 0.3.2 which used the libmad library.

./mpg321 libmad_0.15.1b_memory_corruption.mp3
