Fedora Core 1 : sox-12.17.4-4.fc1 (2004-235)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 13850
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated sox packages that fix buffer overflows in the WAV file handling code are now available.
Buffer overflows existed in the parsing of WAV file header fields. It was possible that a malicious WAV file could have caused arbitrary code to be executed when the file was played or converted.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected sox, sox-debuginfo and / or sox-devel packages.
