Debian DLA-1618-1 : libsndfile security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 119878
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libsndfile, the library for reading and writing files containing sampled sound.

CVE-2017-8361

The flac_buffer_copy function (flac.c) is affected by a buffer overflow. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service, or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2017-8362

The flac_buffer_copy function (flac.c) is affected by an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2017-8363

The flac_buffer_copy function (flac.c) is affected by a heap based OOB read vulnerability. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2017-8365

The i2les_array function (pcm.c) is affected by a global buffer overflow. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service, or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2017-14245 CVE-2017-14246 CVE-2017-17456 CVE-2017-17457

The d2alaw_array() and d2ulaw_array() functions (src/ulaw.c and src/alaw.c) are affected by an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service or information disclosure via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2017-14634

The double64_init() function (double64.c) is affected by a divide-by-zero error. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2018-13139

The psf_memset function (common.c) is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service, or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted audio file. The vulnerability can be triggered by the executable sndfile-deinterleave.

CVE-2018-19432

The sf_write_int function (src/sndfile.c) is affected by an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted audio file.

CVE-2018-19661 CVE-2018-19662

The i2alaw_array() and i2ulaw_array() functions (src/ulaw.c and src/alaw.c) are affected by an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service or information disclosure via a crafted audio file.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.25-9.1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
