Detail

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

- Ubuntu 15.10 - Ubuntu 15.04 - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

libsndfile could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description: - libsndfile: Library for reading/writing audio files

Details:

It was discovered that libsndfile incorrectly handled memory when parsing malformed files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause libsndfile to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. (CVE-2014-9496)

Joshua Rogers discovered that libsndfile incorrectly handled division when parsing malformed files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause libsndfile to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-9756)

Marco Romano discovered that libsndfile incorrectly handled certain malformed AIFF files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause libsndfile to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7805)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 15.10:
libsndfile1 1.0.25-9.1ubuntu0.15.10.1

Ubuntu 15.04:
libsndfile1 1.0.25-9.1ubuntu0.15.04.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
libsndfile1 1.0.25-7ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
libsndfile1 1.0.25-4ubuntu0.1

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make all the necessary changes.
