Debian DSA-1469-1 : flac - several vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 30061


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


Sean de Regge and Greg Linares discovered multiple heap and stack based buffer overflows in FLAC, the Free Lossless Audio Codec, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade the flac packages.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.1-5sarge1.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2-8.
