Description

Ulf Härnhammar discovered a pair of buffer overflows in the WAV file handling code of SoX. If an attacker can cause her victim to process a specially-crafted WAV file with SoX (e.g. through social engineering or through some other program that relies on SoX), arbitrary code can be executed with the privileges of the victim.
