Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:409
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:409.

SoX (Sound eXchange) is a sound file format converter. SoX can convert
between many different digitized sound formats and perform simple sound
manipulation functions, including sound effects.

Buffer overflows existed in the parsing of WAV file header fields. It was

executed when the file was played or converted. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0557
to these issues.

All users of sox should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues as well as fix a number of minor bugs.
