    Debian Bug     : 482518
    Several local (remote) vulnerabilities have been discovered in libvorbis,
    a library for the Vorbis general-purpose compressed audio codec. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        libvorbis does not properly handle a zero value which allows remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or infinite loop) or
        trigger an integer overflow.
        Integer overflow in libvorbis allows remote attackers to execute
        arbitrary code via a crafted OGG file, which triggers a heap overflow.
        Integer overflow in libvorbis allows remote attackers to cause a denial
        of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted OGG file
        which triggers a heap overflow.
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.0.dfsg-3.1. 
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvorbis package.
