Debian DSA-4113-1 : libvorbis - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 106852


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the libraries of the Vorbis audio compression codec, which could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed media file is processed.


Upgrade the libvorbis packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.5-4+deb9u1.
