Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2009-85  

      Date: 2009-06-03
  Severity: 2
      Type: Remote

Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in libsndfile, which  can  be

exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerabilities are caused due to errors in the "htk_read_header()",
"alaw_init()",  "ulaw_init()", "pcm_init()",   "float32_init()",   and

"sds_read_header()" functions. These can be exploited to cause divisions
by zero via specially crafted audio data.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2008:
    libsndfile, all before 1.0.17-8-4

There are update(s) for libsndfile. You can  update  them  via  Package
Manager or with a single command from console:

    pisi up libsndfile
