Ubuntu: Speex vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu It was discovered that Speex did not properly validate its input when processing Speex file headers. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted Speex file, an attacker could create a denial of service in applications linked against Speex or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.
=========================================================== 
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-611-1               May 08, 2008
speex vulnerability
CVE-2008-1686
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  libspeex1                       1.1.11.1-1ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 7.04:
  libspeex1                       1.1.12-3ubuntu0.7.04.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
  libspeex1                       1.1.12-3ubuntu0.7.10.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  libspeex1                       1.1.12-3ubuntu0.8.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart applications linked against
Speex to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that Speex did not properly validate its input when
processing Speex file headers. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted Speex file, an attacker could
create a denial of service in applications linked against Speex or
possibly execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.
