Description

libsndfile versions 1.0.25 and below suffer from a heap overflow vulnerability.

#
# PoC for libsndfile <= 1.0.25 (latest version) Heap overflow
# 
# run ./poc.pl to make nemux.aiff file. Now it can be delivered in different ways. 
#
# Possible attack vectors: 
# - Firefox (on Linux) -> SWF/Audio play -> pulseaudio -> libsndfile ?? (not tested)
# - Email attachment 
# - TCP socket connection (for audio server only)
# - File upload (ex. server side audio file manipulation, interactive voice responder)
# - etc...
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# [*] Affected products: -- All products using libsndfile (a non-exhaustive list below)
#
# [-] PusleAudio             - http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/ (TESTED)
#        Installed by default on most linux environments with libsndfile too (Ex.: Ubuntu, Debian)   
# [-] Jack AudioConnectionKit- http://www.jackaudio.org                             (TESTED)
#        Available for Linux, Win, OSX (List of applications http://www.jackaudio.org/applications/)
# [-] Adobe Audition         - http://www.adobe.com/products/audition.html          (TESTED) 
# [-] Audacity               - http://www.audacityteam.org/                         (TESTED)
# [-] Asterisk-eSpeak Module - https://zaf.github.io/Asterisk-eSpeak/               (NOT TESTED)
# 
# run an "apt-cache rdepends libsndfile1" to see other interesting dependecies
# searching around i found that library is widley used on IOS and Android projects too

# Note: (wikipedia reports that LAME encoder depends by libsndfile too 
#        but i didn't find this dependecy...)

#### Vulnarability is based on the wrong management of the headindex and headend values. 
#### While parsing a specially crafted AIFF header the attacker can manage index values
#### in order to use memcpy(...) to overwrite memory heap.

# Some parts of the source code:
#
# -- common.c:337 [*]
#   ...
# #define SF_STR_BUFFER_LEN               (8192)
# #define SF_HEADER_LEN                   (4100 + SF_STR_BUFFER_LEN)
#    ...
# typedef struct sf_private_tag
# {
#       ...
#   ...
#        /* Index variables for maintaining logbuffer and header above. */
#  ...
#        int                             headindex, headend ;
#  ...
#       /* Virtual I/O functions. */
#        int                                     virtual_io ;
#        SF_VIRTUAL_IO           vio ;
#  ...
#  ...
# } SF_PRIVATE;
# 
# Take a look to the source of aiff.c: 
# -- git clone https://github.com/erikd/libsndfile.git
#
# src/aiff.c:403 
# while (!done) { ... }
# -->
# src/common.c:
# int psf_binheader_readf (SF_PRIVATE *psf, char const *format, ...) { } 
# --> -->  
# src/common.c:793
# static int header_read (SF_PRIVATE *psf, void *ptr, int bytes)
# --> --> -->
# src/common.c:
#  static int header_read(...) {
#   ...
#    ( here we can write content of file outside the buffer if headindex is  ) 
#   ...
#    memcpy (ptr, psf->header + psf->headindex, bytes) ;
#    psf->headindex += bytes ;
#
# } /* header_read */
#  
# Thourgh a specially crafted AIFF header we can
# 1- increase and decrease the headindex value regardless what should be its real value   
# 2- Overwriting memory with arbitrary data...
