Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0975

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

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.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
