The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201312-14
(libsndfile: Arbitrary code execution)
An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libsndfile.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PAF
file using libsndfile, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All libsndfile users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libsndfile-1.0.25'
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
