1) Introduction

Cheese Tracker is a well known music tracker for the CT, IT, XM and S3M
file formats.

2) Bug
======


The XM loader used by Cheese Tracker is affected by a buffer-overflow
vulnerability which happens when it tries to store the exceeding data
available in the input file in the junkbuster buffer of only 500 bytes.

From cheesetracker/loaders/loader_xm.cpp:

Loader::Error Loader_XM::load_instrument_internal(Instrument *p_instr,bool p_xi,int p_cpos, int p_hsize, int p_sampnum) 
{
        ...
        if (!p_xi) {

            if ((reader.get_file_pos()-p_cpos)<p_hsize) {

                Uint8 junkbuster[500];

                //printf("extra junk XM instrument in header! hsize is %i, extra junk: 
%i\n",p_hsize,(reader.get_file_pos()-p_cpos));

                reader.get_byte_array((Uint8*)junkbuster,p_hsize-(reader.get_file_pos()-p_cpos));
            }
            ...
