Fedora 7 : libvorbis-1.1.2-4.fc7 (2008-3898)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Will Drewry of the Google Security Team reported several flaws in the
way libvorbis processed audio data. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted OGG audio file in such a way that it could cause an
application linked with libvorbis to crash, or execute arbitrary code
when it was opened. (CVE-2008-1419, CVE-2008-1420, CVE-2008-1423)
Moreover, additional OGG file sanity-checks have been added to prevent
possible exploitation of similar issues in the future.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
