The remote host is missing an update for the 'libsndfile'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The libsndfile packages provide a library for reading and writing sound
An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the way the libsndfile library processed certain Ensoniq PARIS
Audio Format (PAF) audio files. An attacker could create a
specially-crafted PAF file that, when opened, could cause an application
using libsndfile to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2011-2696)
Users of libsndfile are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications
using libsndfile must be restarted for the update to take effect.
libsndfile on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
