New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated libsndfile packages fix security vulnerabilities :

libsndfile contains multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities in src/sd2.c because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (CVE-2014-9496).

libsndfile contains a divide-by-zero error in src/file_io.c which may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
