audiofile vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its
derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary

audiofile could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially
crafted file.

Software description

    – Open-source version of the SGI audiofile library

Details

Agostino Sarubbo discovered that audiofile incorrectly handled certain
malformed audio files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a specially crafted audio file, a remote attacker could cause
applications linked against audiofile to crash, leading to a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

package version:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
libaudiofile1

0.3.6-2ubuntu0.14.04.2
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
