Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59213
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-525-1 (libsndfile)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-525-1 (libsndfile)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libsndfile
announced via advisory USN-525-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Robert Buchholz discovered that libsndfile did not correctly validate the
size of its memory buffers. If a user were tricked into playing a specially
crafted FLAC file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user
privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libsndfile1 1.0.12-3ubuntu1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libsndfile1 1.0.16-1ubuntu0.6.10.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
libsndfile1 1.0.16-1ubuntu0.7.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to affect
the necessary changes.
