An integer overflow in libsndfile might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
|Package||media-libs/libsndfile on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.0.25|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.0.25|
Libsndfile is a C library for reading and writing files containing sampled sound through one standard library interface.
An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libsndfile.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PAF file using libsndfile, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libsndfile users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libsndfile-1.0.25"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since September 12, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
