Description Laura Pardo 2018-07-16 23:02:09 UTC
A flaw was found in Olli Parviainen SoundTouch 2.0. The RateTransposer::setChannels function in RateTransposer.cpp in libSoundTouch.a allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application exit), as demonstrated by SoundStretch.
