Description Vincent Danen 2012-04-04 17:41:54 EDT
It was reported [1] that taglib suffers from an integer overflow flaw when parsing file header fields.  A file with a crafted header could cause a large allocation and crash the application.

This has been corrected in git [2].

Comment 5 Stefan Cornelius 2012-05-02 10:26:31 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.
