Michele Spagnuolo, of Google Security Team, and Miroslav Lichvar, of Red Hat, discovered two issues in flac, a library handling Free Lossless Audio Codec media: by providing a specially crafted FLAC file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.1-6+deb7u1.
For the testing distribution (jessie) and unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.0-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your flac packages.
