Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-05-15 13:38:46 EDT
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in libsndfile's Creative Voice (VOC) file format decoder. An attacker could create a specially-crafted VOC file,
which would cause an application using libsndfile to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code as the user running the application, when opened by
a victim. 

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in libsndfile's Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) file format decoder. An attacker could create a malicious
AIFF file (with specially-crafted 'MARK' chunk), which would cause an
application using libsndfile to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code
as the user running the application, when opened by a victim.
