Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libsndfile (MDVSA-2015:024)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 80561
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.

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.
