    Debian Bug     : 773720
    
    Michele Spagnuolo of the Google Security Team dicovered two heap-based
    buffer overflows in SoX, the Swiss Army knife of sound processing
    programs. A specially crafted wav file could cause an application using
    SoX to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 14.4.0-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable
    distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sox packages.
