- Date Reported:
- 12 Nov 2023
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 931343, Bug 1008017.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-13147, CVE-2022-24599.
- More information:
The audiofile library allows the processing of audio data to and from audio files of many common formats (currently AIFF, AIFF-C, WAVE, NeXT/Sun, BICS, and raw data).
Audiofile was vulnerable due to an integer overflow. Bail out early if NeXT audio files include too many channels.
A memory leak was found due to reading not null terminated copyright field. Preallocate zeroed memory and always NUL terminates C strings.
For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 0.3.6-5+deb10u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your audiofile packages.
