Debian DLA-1712-1 : libsndfile security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 122827
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

It was found that the fix for CVE-2018-19758 was incomplete. That has been addressed in this update. The description for CVE-2018-19758 follows :

A heap-buffer-overflow vulnerability was discovered in libsndfile, the library for reading and writing files containing sampled sound. This flaw might be triggered by remote attackers to cause denial of service (out of bounds read and application crash).

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.25-9.1+deb8u4.

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.
