Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-10-15 11:30:43 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2007-4619 to the following vulnerability:

Multiple integer overflows in Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) libFLAC before 1.2.1, as used in Winamp before 5.5 and other products, allow user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed FLAC file that triggers improper memory allocation, resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow.

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-15 13:56:29 UTC
Looks like an update would be needed on FC6, F7, RHEL3, RHEL4, and RHEL5.

Only problem being that we can't upgrade to 1.2.1 in any of those, as 1.1.3
changed the API considerably, and the patch would only apply cleanly to 1.2.0
(which we don't use anywhere, otherwise, we'd just upgrade it to 1.2.1).
