Description Marc Schoenefeld 2009-09-03 14:58:59 UTC
The native function Java_com_sun_media_sound_DirectAudioDevice_nWrite+0x10e
fails to block a integer overflow condition and subsequently crashes in libjsoundalsa.so

As a user-controlled buffer is involved in the API call, the choice was to call this a security bug.
