The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
USN-611-1 fixed a vulnerability in Speex. This update provides the
corresponding update for ogg123, part of vorbis-tools.
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.
Update the affected vorbis-tools package.
