New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionLucas Adamski, Matthew Gregan, David Keeler, and Dan Kaminsky discovered that libvorbis, a library for the Vorbis general-purpose compressed audio codec, did not correctly handle certain malformed ogg files. An attacker could cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .ogg file.
SolutionUpgrade the libvorbis packages.
For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2.dfsg-1.4+etch1.
For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.0.dfsg-3.1+lenny1.
