Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

CVE-2009-2663 libvorbis: Improper codec headers processing (DoS, ACE)

An insufficient input validation flaw was found in the way libvorbis processes the codec file headers (static mode headers and encoding books) of the Ogg Vorbis audio file format (Ogg). A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted Ogg file that would cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of an application using the libvorbis library when opened by a victim. (CVE-2009-2663)

The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected libvorbis and / or libvorbis-devel packages.
