to execute arbitrary code.

libsndfile is a C library for reading and writing files containing
sampled sound.
Alin Rad Pop from Secunia Research reported an integer overflow when
processing CAF description chunks, leading to a heap-based buffer
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted CAF
file, resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libsndfile users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/libsndfile-1.0.19&quot;</code>
