Description Tomas Hoger 2008-04-28 09:42:36 EDT
Will Drewry of the Google Security Team created a set of fuzzed OGG test files
to test OGG Vorbis and Tremor implementations.  Some of them were causing memory
corruption and crash on old libvorbis versions (prior to 1.0).

Crash / corruption occurred in _make_decode_tree().  This function was removed
prior to the release of upstream version 1.0 in following changes:


Test files do not crash libvobis revision 2960 or later.

Patch from Monty (xiphmont)

Patch adds _check_words, a dry-run variant of _make_words, that does performs
huffman tree validation early in the stream decoding.
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-29 05:15:15 EDT
Similar additional checks were committed to libvorbis trunk to reject
underpopulated Huffman trees early in the file parsing:
