Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Various issues have been fixed in Debian LTS (squeeze) for package vorbis-tools.

CVE-2014-9638

A crafted WAV file with number of channels set to 0 will cause oggenc to crash due to a division by zero issue. This issue has been fixed upstream by providing a fix for CVE-2014-9639. Reported upstream by 'zuBux'.

CVE-2014-9639

An integer overflow issue was discovered in oggenc, related to the number of channels in the input WAV file. The issue triggers an out-of-bounds memory access which causes oggenc to crash here (audio.c). Reported upstream by 'zuBux'.

The upstream fix for this has been backported to vorbis-tools in Debian LTS (squeeze).

CVE-2014-9640

Fix for a crash on closing raw input (dd if=/dev/zero bs=1 count=1 | oggenc -r - -o out.ogg). Reported upstream by 'hanno'.

The upstream fix for this has been backported to vorbis-tools in Debian LTS (squeeze).

CVE-2015-6749

Buffer overflow in the aiff_open function in oggenc/audio.c in vorbis-tools 1.4.0 and earlier allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted AIFF file. Reported upstream by 'pengsu'.

The upstream fix for this has been backported to vorbis-tools in Debian LTS (squeeze).

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected vorbis-tools, and vorbis-tools-dbg packages.
