Description

Hanno Bock discovered that WavPack incorrectly handled certain WV files. An attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. (CVE-2016-10169)

Joonun Jang discovered that WavPack incorrectly handled certain RF64 files. An attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 17.10. (CVE-2018-6767).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
