Debian Security Advisory DSA-3112-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Salvatore Bonaccorso December 23, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : sox CVE ID : CVE-2014-8145 Debian Bug : 773720

Michele Spagnuolo of the Google Security Team dicovered two heap-based buffer overflows in SoX, the Swiss Army knife of sound processing programs. A specially crafted wav file could cause an application using SoX to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 14.4.0-3+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your sox packages.
