Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated libsndfile packages fix security vulnerabilities :

libsndfile contains multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities in
src/sd2.c because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied
input, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause
a denial of service (CVE-2014-9496).

libsndfile contains a divide-by-zero error in src/file_io.c which may
allow an attacker to cause a denial of service.
