Comment 1 Adam Mariš 2015-11-04 10:38:40 UTC
Created libsndfile tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1277916]
Affects: epel-5 [bug 1277917]

Comment 2 Stefan Cornelius 2015-11-06 11:34:29 UTC
I think this is a problem in the test, not the function. Others came to the same conclusion:
http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2015/q4/226

This does not mean that the psf_strlcpy_crlf function is secure (because I didn't audit it), but this particular case of an error that was reported does not indicate that there's a problem in the function itself.
