Laurent Delosieres, Secunia Research at Flexera Software reports :

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in libsndfile, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information. The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the 'aiff_read_chanmap()' function (src/aiff.c), which can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds read memory access via a specially crafted AIFF file. The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0.28. Other versions may also be affected.
