Debian Security Advisory DSA-3112-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : sox
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8145
Debian Bug     : 773720

Michele Spagnuolo of the Google Security Team dicovered two heap-based
buffer overflows in SoX, the Swiss Army knife of sound processing
programs. A specially crafted wav file could cause an application using
SoX to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 14.4.0-3+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable
distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your sox packages.
