Package        : libsndfile
Version        : 1.0.25-9.1+deb8u3
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-19758
Debian Bug     : 917416

A heap-buffer-overflow vulnerability was discovered in libsndfile, the
library for reading and writing files containing sampled sound. This flaw
might be triggered by remote attackers to cause denial of service (out of
bounds read and application crash). 

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.0.25-9.1+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.
