Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 18.10 : libsndfile vulnerabilities (USN-4013-1)

Description

It was discovered that libsndfile incorrectly handled certain malformed files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause libsndfile to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. 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.
