CVE-2009-2663 libvorbis: Improper codec headers processing (DoS, ACE)
Last modified: 2012-06-20 10:19:47 EDT
An insufficient input validation flaw was found in the way libvorbis
used to process codec file headers (static mode headers and encoding
books) for the Ogg Vorbis audio file format (Ogg). A remote attacker
could provide a specially-crafted Ogg file, which would lead to
denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or,
potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application
using the libvorbis library, when opened by the victim.
