Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in faad2, the Freeware Advanced Audio Coder:

CVE-2018-20194 CVE-2018-20197

Improper handling of implicit channel mapping reconfiguration leads to
multiple heap based buffer overflow issues. These flaws might be leveraged
by remote attackers to cause DoS.

Insufficient user input validation in the sbr_hfadj module leads to
stack-based buffer underflow issues. These flaws might be leveraged by

We recommend that you upgrade your faad2 packages.
