Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-409: sox

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sox packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated sox packages that fix buffer overflows in the WAV file handling
code are now available.

SoX (Sound eXchange) is a sound file format converter. SoX can convert
between many different digitized sound formats and perform simple sound
manipulation functions, including sound effects.

Buffer overflows existed in the parsing of WAV file header fields. It was
possible that a malicious WAV file could have caused arbitrary code to be
executed when the file was played or converted. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0557
to these issues.

All users of sox should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues as well as fix a number of minor bugs.
