audiofile vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

audiofile could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially
crafted file.

Software Description:
- audiofile: Open-source version of the SGI audiofile library

Details:

Agostino Sarubbo discovered that audiofile incorrectly handled certain
malformed audio files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a specially crafted audio file, a remote attacker could cause
applications linked against audiofile to crash, leading to a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  libaudiofile1                   0.3.6-2ubuntu0.14.04.2

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  libaudiofile1                   0.3.3-2ubuntu0.3

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
