Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'flac'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The flac packages contain a decoder and an encoder for the FLAC (Free
Lossless Audio Codec) audio file format.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way flac decoded FLAC audio files.
An attacker could create a specially crafted FLAC audio file that could
cause an application using the flac library to crash or execute arbitrary
code when the file was read. (CVE-2014-9028)

A buffer over-read flaw was found in the way flac processed certain ID3v2
metadata. An attacker could create a specially crafted FLAC audio file that
could cause an application using the flac library to crash when the file
was read. (CVE-2014-8962)

All flac users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the
update, all applications linked against the flac library must be restarted
for this update to take effect.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
