Ubuntu 16.04 LTS : libsndfile vulnerabilities (USN-4704-1)

Description

The remote Ubuntu 16.04 LTS host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-4704-1 advisory. - In libsndfile version 1.0.28, an error in the aiff_read_chanmap() function (aiff.c) can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds read memory access via a specially crafted AIFF file. (CVE-2017-6892) - Heap-based Buffer Overflow in the psf_binheader_writef function in common.c in libsndfile through 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact. (CVE-2017-12562) - An out of bounds read in the function d2alaw_array() in alaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values. (CVE-2017-14245) - An out of bounds read in the function d2ulaw_array() in ulaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values. (CVE-2017-14246) - In libsndfile 1.0.28, a divide-by-zero error exists in the function double64_init() in double64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file. (CVE-2017-14634) - In libsndfile 1.0.25 (fixed in 1.0.26), a divide-by-zero error exists in the function wav_w64_read_fmt_chunk() in wav_w64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file. (CVE-2017-16942) - A stack-based buffer overflow in psf_memset in common.c in libsndfile 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted audio file. The vulnerability can be triggered by the executable sndfile-deinterleave. (CVE-2018-13139) - An issue was discovered in libsndfile 1.0.28. There is a NULL pointer dereference in the function sf_write_int in sndfile.c, which will lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2018-19432) - An issue was discovered in libsndfile 1.0.28. There is a buffer over-read in the function i2ulaw_array in ulaw.c that will lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2018-19661) - An issue was discovered in libsndfile 1.0.28. There is a buffer over-read in the function i2alaw_array in alaw.c that will lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2018-19662) - There is a heap-based buffer over-read at wav.c in wav_write_header in libsndfile 1.0.28 that will cause a denial of service. (CVE-2018-19758) - It was discovered the fix for CVE-2018-19758 (libsndfile) was not complete and still allows a read beyond the limits of a buffer in wav_write_header() function in wav.c. A local attacker may use this flaw to make the application crash. (CVE-2019-3832) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
