Updated on: 2004-07-29
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: sox wav
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0557
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated sox packages that fix buffer overflows in the WAV file handling code are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

SoX (Sound eXchange) is a sound file format converter. SoX can convert between many different digitized sound formats and perform simple sound manipulation functions, including sound effects.

Buffer overflows existed in the parsing of WAV file header fields. It was possible that a malicious WAV file could have caused arbitrary code to be executed when the file was played or converted. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0557 to these issues.

All users of sox should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues as well as fix a number of minor bugs.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
