Description Vincent Danen 2012-03-06 12:52:17 EST
It was reported [1] that, when parsing an Ogg file, a specially crafted Ogg file with control over the "vendorLength" field could cause a string allocation with that size.  Control over the "commentFields", which is the number of times that "commentLength" is read, would allocate a string of size "commandLength", which could cause an application linked to taglib to crash. This has been fixed in upstream git [2],[3].

Comment 7 Stefan Cornelius 2012-05-02 10:26:33 EDT
Statement:

taglib is only used in client applications. We do not consider a user-assisted crash of a client application such as k3b or Totem to be a security issue.
