Affects: fedora-all [bug 1730578]

Comment 2 Doran Moppert 2019-08-22 02:20:46 UTC

This issue is only a security vulnerability for applications linking against libsox, that may be caused to crash prematurely or even, under special circumstances, disclose sensitive memory contents. Attacks against the sox binaries do not constitute a security threat since these are all short-run programs that do not hold sensitive data in memory.
