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).

We recommend that you upgrade your libsndfile packages.
