Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0975
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0975.

FLAC is a Free Lossless Audio Codec. The flac package consists of a FLAC
encoder and decoder in library form, a program to encode and decode FLAC
files, a metadata editor for FLAC files and input plugins for various music
players.

A security flaw was found in the way flac processed audio data. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted FLAC audio file in such a way that
it could cause an application linked with flac libraries to crash or execute
arbitrary code when it was opened. (CVE-2007-4619)

Users of flac are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch that resolves this issue.

Solution:
