The resample_gauss function in resample.c in TiMidity++ 2.14.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted mid file. NOTE: a crash might be relevant when using the --background option. NOTE: the TiMidity++ README.alsaseq documentation suggests a setuid-root installation.
