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

with an invalid header value.

This is already fixed in all releases, what is it NEW then ?

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2010-05-31 06:11:08 UTC
EPEL-5 has libsndfile-1.0.17-2.el5.

Comment 8 Vincent Danen 2010-12-20 22:22:21 UTC
This is still not fixed in EPEL5 (1.0.17-3.el5), yet it was updated recently:

* Thu Jul 08 2010 Michel Salim <salimma> - 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 15:29:52 UTC
Thanks much for taking care of it!

Comment 11 Vincent Danen 2010-12-23 15:38:35 UTC
I see that libsndfile-1.0.17-4.el5 was submitted for EPEL5.  Closing, with many thanks!
