A buffer overflow vulnerability in libsamplerate might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||media-libs/libsamplerate on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.1.4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.1.4|
Secret Rabbit Code (aka libsamplerate) is a Sample Rate Converter for audio.
Russell O'Connor reported a buffer overflow in src/src_sinc.c related to low conversion ratios.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a specially crafted audio file possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libsamplerate users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libsamplerate-0.1.4"
