Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 / 11.10 : libvorbis vulnerability (USN-1370-1)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 58069
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed ogg files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted ogg file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libvorbis0a package.
