Description Josh Bressers 2009-05-26 15:23:05 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-1788 to the following vulnerability:

Heap-based buffer overflow in voc_read_header in libsndfile 1.0.15
through 1.0.19, as used in Winamp 5.552 and possibly other media
programs, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VOC file
with an invalid header value.

This is already fixed in all releases, what is it NEW then ?
Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2010-05-31 02:11:08 EDT
EPEL-5 has libsndfile-1.0.17-2.el5.
Comment 8 Vincent Danen 2010-12-20 17:22:21 EST
This is still not fixed in EPEL5 (1.0.17-3.el5), yet it was updated recently:

* Thu Jul 08 2010 Michel Salim <salimma@fedoraproject.org> - 1.0.17-3
- Fix for channel per frame overflow (CVE-2009-0186, #488364) 

Will this be fixed in EPEL5?

> Will this be fixed in EPEL5?

Building right now. Thanks for asking, without it I won't know about this bug (this bug was filled before I became co-maintainer and is not filled directly against libsndfile, so I did not know this bug existed).
Comment 10 Vincent Danen 2010-12-23 10:29:52 EST
Thanks much for taking care of it!
Comment 11 Vincent Danen 2010-12-23 10:38:35 EST
I see that libsndfile-1.0.17-4.el5 was submitted for EPEL5.  Closing, with many thanks!
