SuSE 11.1 Security Update : libvorbis (SAT Patch Number 5851)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 58195
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 SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


Specially crafted Ogg files could cause a heap-based buffer overflow in the vorbis audio compression library that could potentially be exploited by attackers to cause a crash or execute arbitrary code.


Apply SAT patch number 5851.
