Debian DSA-2412-1 : libvorbis - buffer overflow

critical Nessus Plugin ID 58012
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.


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


It was discovered that a heap overflow in the Vorbis audio compression library could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed Ogg Vorbis file is processed.


Upgrade the libvorbis packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.1-1+squeeze1.
