Package        : libvorbis
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1419 CVE-2008-1420 CVE-2008-1423
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.
