Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: libsndfile: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201612-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: December 03, 2016
Bug(s): #533750, #566682
ID: 201612-03


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
sampled sound.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/libsndfile
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"
