Exploitable: local, remote
Date: December 03, 2016
Bug(s): #533750, #566682
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libsndfile, the worst
of which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
libsndfile is a C library for reading and writing files containing
Vulnerable: < 1.0.26
Unaffected: >= 1.0.26
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libsndfile. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges
of the process, or cause 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-1.0.26"
