<background>
<p>Libsndfile is a C library for reading and writing files containing
sampled sound through one standard library interface.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libsndfile.</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PAF
file using libsndfile, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All libsndfile users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-libs/libsndfile-1.0.25"
</code>
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
</p>
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since September 12, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
