Description Sam Fowler 2018-07-12 05:45:25 UTC
The Audio File Library through version 0.3.6 is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference in the modules/ModuleState.cpp:ModuleState::setup() function. An attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via crafted caf file.

Comment 6 Scott Gayou 2018-07-13 15:09:02 UTC
RHEL7 segfaults with the POC. RHEL5/6 do not appear vulnerable as the version of audiofile shipped did not yet support CAFF files. See units.c in RHEL5/6 and units.cpp in RHEL7 release.

Comment 8 Scott Gayou 2018-07-13 15:12:35 UTC

Red Hat Product Security has rated this issue as having a security impact of Low, and a future update may address this flaw.
