(libvorbis: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Lucas Adamski reported that libvorbis does not correctly process file
headers, related to static mode headers and encoding books.
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted OGG
Vorbis file using an application that uses libvorbis, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
