    Michele Spagnuolo, of Google Security Team, and Miroslav Lichvar, of
    Red Hat, discovered two issues in flac, a library handling Free
    Lossless Audio Codec media: by providing a specially crafted FLAC
    file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-6+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie) and unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.0-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your flac packages.
