Debian: New libsnd packages fix arbitrary code execution

Alan Rad Pop discovered that libsndfile, a library to read and write sampled audio data, is prone to an integer overflow. This causes a heap-based buffer overflow when processing crafted CAF description chunks possibly leading to arbitrary code execution. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Alan Rad Pop discovered that libsndfile, a library to read and write
sampled audio data, is prone to an integer overflow. This causes a
heap-based buffer overflow when processing crafted CAF description
chunks possibly leading to arbitrary code execution.


For the oldstable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.16-2+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.17-4+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.19-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.
