libsndfile FLAC.C Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The 'libsndfile' library is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with the permission of an application using the library. This can compromise the affected application and possibly the underlying computer. Failed attacks will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

This issue affects libsndfile 1.0.17; previous versions may also be vulnerable.
