Introduction:
=============
Libao is a cross-platform audio library that allows programs to output audio using a simple API on a wide variety of platforms.


Affected version:
=====
1.2.0


Vulnerability Description:
==========================
the _tokenize_matrix function in audio_out.c in Xiph.Org libao 1.2.0 can cause a denial of service(memory corruption) via a crafted mp3 file.


I found this bug when I test mpg321 0.3.2 which used the libao library.


./mpg321 libao_1.2.0_memory_corruption.mp3
