Package : sox
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0557

Ulf Harnhammar has reported two vulnerabilities in SoX, a universal sound sample translator, which may be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system with a specially crafted .wav file.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 12.17.3-4woody2.

We recommend that you upgrade your sox package.
