- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-12562, CVE-2021-4156.

Two issues have been found in libsndfile, a library for reading/writing audio files.
Due to a possible heap buffer overflow attack in an attacker could cause a remote denial of service attack by tricking the function into outputting a largeamount of data.
Using a crafted FLAC file, an attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read that would most likely cause a crash but could potentially leak memory information.
For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.27-3+deb9u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.
