Description Josh Bressers 2009-05-26 19:25:37 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-1791 to the following vulnerability:

Heap-based buffer overflow in aiff_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 an AIFF
file with an invalid header value.

Issue was fixed upstream in 1.0.20:
