Scientific Linux Security Update : libvorbis on SL3.x, SL4.x, SL5.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60399
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionWill Drewry of the Google Security Team reported several flaws in the way libvorbis processed audio data. An attacker could create a carefully crafted OGG audio file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with libvorbis to crash, or execute arbitrary code when it was opened. (CVE-2008-1419, CVE-2008-1420, CVE-2008-1423)
Moreover, additional OGG file sanity-checks have been added to prevent possible exploitation of similar issues in the future.
SolutionUpdate the affected libvorbis and / or libvorbis-devel packages.
