SecurityFocus reports about libmusicbrainz:

The libmusicbrainz library is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because the application fails to check the size of the data before copying it into a finite-sized internal memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code within the context of the application or to cause a denial-of-service condition.
