Description

It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed ogg files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted ogg file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2009-2663)

USN-682-1 provided updated libvorbis packages to fix multiple security vulnerabilities. The upstream security patch to fix CVE-2008-1420 introduced a regression when reading sound files encoded with libvorbis 1.0beta1. This update corrects the problem.

It was discovered that libvorbis did not correctly handle certain malformed sound files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted sound file with an application that uses libvorbis, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-1420).

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.
