Debian DSA-4125-1 : wavpack - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 107025


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


Joonun Jang discovered several problems in wavpack, an audio compression format suite. Incorrect processing of input resulted in several heap- and stack-based buffer overflows, leading to application crash or potential code execution.


Upgrade the wavpack packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.0.0-2+deb9u1.
